Extreme ice swimmer and motivational speaker Ryan Stramrood is in the loft with us today.
For the most part, South Africans - and Capetonians specifically - cannot stamd the cold waters along our shores. Here is a man who not only braves ice cold waters, but enjoys it. In the loft is extreme ice swimmer and motivational speaker Ryan Stramrood. Following painful, pioneering training techniques and using what limited resources the team can find to put basic safety procedures in place, Ryan challenges himself by pushing personal limits for swimming in ice water, often setting new benchmarks for human endurance while they are at it.
Founding member of the now widely recognised and globally adopted International Ice Swimming Association (IISA) and as a Trustee of the SEAL Open Water Swimming Trust (with Ram Barkai & Ryk Neethling), Ryan uses his ‘reluctant’ platform to raise funds for the trust and to help put a curb to the unacceptably high rate of drownings in SA’s disadvantaged communities.
