Samantha Whelpton is certainly adventurous.

The 35-year-old South African ice swimmer, marathon swimmer, and Ironman triathlete has traveled around the world, from competing in the Antarctica Ice Kilometer Swim to the IISA 3rd World Championships in Murmansk, Russia.

Her next stop on your global tour of aquatic adventure is her participation in the 2019 WOWSA Ocean Fest in Redondo Beach, California where the water temperature is currently 71°F (21.6°C) – much, much warmer than her 29.8°F (-1.2°C) Antarctic swim.
