Happy Wild Swimming Smiles History

So how did all the smiles begin?

Happy Wild Swimming Smiles History … once upon a time, a few swimmers found themselves enjoying their hobby of swimming in the sea. That day the sun was shining and the salty water surface glistened like floating diamonds. Each of the swimmers beamed smiles of natural joy, as one said, “I’m so happy wild swimming, we should declare it with our own fun design swim cap”.

A month later, with the smiley cap design created, passed to a supplier and caps printed, those swimmers returned to enjoy many more swims with a growing group of local friends, all wearing smiles on their faces … and on their heads!

As swims progressed in different locations and more swimmers joined in the fun a few onlookers requested they have caps too. The word soon spread and the requests became more frequent. The original private local swimming group already had their own secret social group but to allow others to enjoy the fun, the caps were given their own public Facebook group Happy Wild Swimming. Swimmers around the UK started to request a cap and some uploaded photos of themselves and friends wearing the caps in different locations and in a variety of poses. The word then reached USA swimmers from Miami Beach Florida, to Virginia and Seattle, through to swimmers in Australia and Scandinavia, all purchasing their own caps to join in the sharing of images via the Facebook group Happy Wild Swimming.

For the few less adventurous swimmers who still wanted to enjoy the fun design but in the less wild environment of lido swimming pools and indoor swimming pools, the ‘happy Swimming’ option was created – still one in which they declared that they were always ‘Happy Swimming’! Added to this were requests from those outdoor swimmers happily acclimatised to all year round outdoor swimming in cold water, winter swimming and even ice swimming  – leading to the ‘Happy Cold swimming’ cap. In fact, now swimmers all around the world have purchased various colours, many buying several colours in each cap design to suit their various swimming locations outdoors, indoors and when on holiday abroad.

The social fun of sharing photos uploaded has been enjoyed by swimmers around the UK. Not just in various places across England, also in Wales, Scotland, Shetlands, Channel Islands and USA. Swimmers have taken them on trips abroad, featuring caps on sunbeds in the Canary Islands, in Spanish coastal waves, bathing in hot springs in Iceland and even worn by a horse rider in Africa!

It begs the question, ‘can we rule out that one day they’ll be in space?’

To mark their enjoyment of the ‘Happy caps’ several swimmers requested related publications be created to further spread the enjoyment swimmers have when happy wild swimming. So, with the cooperation of the swimmers providing personal contributions the Happy Wild Swimming publications came to life with the first book “Swimming with smiles” – www.swimmingwithsmiles.com later followed by Swimming with shivers – www.swimmingwithshivers.com

Happy Wild Swimming – what a ‘wild’ idea!
