Before you get started...  

Thank you for taking part, we really value your participation in the unique and growing Sydney Skinny community.

Now remember, this is NOT a race! It's an untimed 300m or 900m swim. Choose the wave group you want to swim in - then tell your friends to join you in the same wave, and let the fun begin! 

The Sydney Skinny proudly supports The Charlie Teo Foundation, funding brain cancer research. Today in Australia, brain cancer kills more children than any other disease. It kills more young people under the age of 40 than any other cancer, and it has a 5-year survival rate of just 22%. We believe a better future is possible, and with your help we fight for this hope. 

Waves 1 & 2 will have media present, every wave after that is strictly media free.

Wave 4 is for female swimmers only, but please be aware, as a mixed event there will both genders on the beach, rescue boards and in waves before and after. This is about giving opportunity for a little more camaraderie and support, not exclusivity.

Wave 14 is for many the highlight - a free extra party wave to anyone who has already taken part. Space is limited.

Please Note: Producing a quality outdoor activity event is an expensive exercise! It is integral to us, to run as lean as possible while still maintaining the highest of safety and quality standards. In order to do so your full registration fee goes directly to the operational costs of running the event (Surf Life Savers, Park Hire, Security, etc). Yet again we have held the ticket price despite rising costs, and encourage you all to please make a donation to the Charlie Teo Foundation. This can be done during the checkout process, by donating directly to their Everyday Hero page or setting up your own fundraising page!
