After a successful run in film festivals in the Czech Republic I have decided to release the DVD of my flim “Winter swimming” right here on my website. It will be informative, interesting and entertaining for both beginners and experienced winter swimmers all over the world. See the DVD cover and details of how to buy below.

If you are interested in screening the film at your event or club please get in touch here to dicuss the details. This can be combined with a short lecture by myself, Jack Bright about winter swimming and hardening followed by a discussion.

Winter swimming DVD just £14.99 + free shipping within Europe!

Winter swimming DVD just £19.99 + free shipping worldwide!

In this exciting documentary film about the extreme but exhilarating sport of winter swimming we meet the members of 1.PKO, a swimming club based on the banks of the Vltava river in Prague and specialising in swimming outside through the winter. We come across various characters including Tomas and Tania who prove that the power of ice cold water is the power of life itself.

Shot during one of the strongest winters for many years, with an abundance of ice, snow and freezing temperatures, the film features beautiful cinematography from the award winning Jan Mika (Junior).

Swimmers can be seen together with skiers and the great power that mother nature wields in the form of cold water is captured through the experiences of the swimmers including a wedding in cold water!

Enjoy the trailer.

    Hi Andrew. Congratulations on the Patagonia expedition I heard about it a few weeks ago. Some great swims and an amazing environment for it too I presume.Funny I came across something about the Zurich swim the other day, something about the plan rather than a post swim report. So you did it? it sounded like a potentially very testing swim. You can contact me on my email for further discussion about cooperation etc Looking forward to talking some more.

    Отличная работа, молодец Джек.

  18. Han van Kleef, The Netherlands says:

    I just bought the DVD and saw the documentary, and I am very enthousiastic about it. It brings across a compelling and inspiring story about how we can work together with each other and with winter’s forces to become more healthy and energetic, and psychologically stronger. And that without artificial means or tricks. Great!
