One "Polar Bear" to rule them all - Rob Dumochel of Rob Aquatics!
Blogger, Rob Dumouchel, of RobAquatics.com swims and completes an Avila Beach, Pier-to-Pier, swim at Pismo Beach without a wetsuit in middle 50-degree water.
This was an epic test of endurance and ability. Hypothermia charts predict exhaustion or unconsciousness can take only one-to-two hours, expected time of survival is 1-6 hours. Rob completed the marathon swim in about 4-hours.
Could this become a premier "polar bear event?"
