This session will go down as one of the hardest days of swimming in my life. After three days of shooting from land, I decided that I had to give it an attempt. With only one fin, I inched my way out onto the reef and did my best to time the sets before my swim. Unfortunately, I couldn’t hold my ground with all the water moving from the relentless waves and I hopped into a mini-river of current and was swept down the beach. I dove under about 25 waves before I was finally out of the impact zone.
