The pier in Huntington Beach is a great place to train on various aspects of competitive ocean swimming.

Racing in’s and out’s, bodysurfing into the shoreline, drafting in narrow space, swimming among marine life and amid cross currents, and just good ol’ fashion swimming around a pier are all different kinds of training opportunities.
