Man Vs Ocean: Zoggs Open Water Swim Ambassador Adam Walker Launches Autobiography

Man Vs Ocean: Zoggs Open Water Swim Ambassador Adam Walker Launches Autobiography

Man V Ocean Book JacketAdam 'Ocean' Walker was the first Briton to complete the 7 toughest channel swims in the World, also known as the Oceans 7! This incredible endurance challenge is considered the ocean equivalent to the "Seven Summits" and Adam was the second person ever to complete all seven swims on his first attempt!

This autobiography captures Adam's journey from being a toaster salesman to becoming the 5th person in the World to complete the Oceans 7 challenge. The Oceans 7 is not for the faint-hearted - Adam took on the English Channel, Strait of Gibraltar, Molokai Strait, Catalina Channel, Tsugaru Strait, Cook Strait and North Channel over the course of six years. Adam has worn Zoggs Predator Flex Goggles throughout his 7 ocean swims, and we are honoured to have him as our Open Water and Triathlon Swimming Ambassador.

During his swims Adam had to face dangerous currents, enormous swells, deadly marine life (including a pretty horrific sting from a Portuguese Man o' War), freezing temperatures, sea sickness and much more.

Adam is a huge inspiration to the team here at Zoggs and we hope you enjoy his fascinating story just as much as we do! His autobiography 'Man Vs Ocean' is available to order online here.
