A Fijian First – Bula Shane!

Get to know Shane Cross! Shane won back his Swim Pack and an FJD$500 credit at the Sofitel Fiji during our recent promotion. Hailing from the Bay of Islands, Shane is coming to Ocean Swim Fiji with his wife and fellow swimmer Alyson.

This September will be Shane’s first trip to Fiji, and he’s super excited! After taking part in the Banana Boat New Zealand Ocean Swim Series Shane’s looking forward to being in good hands with Scott and his crew when he takes to the waters in Fiji. 

Previously a runner, Shane credits Alyson with getting him into ocean swimming five years ago. Nowadays, the couple swims in the ocean all year round – even in temperatures as low as twelve degrees. There’s never a dull moment training for Shane, with so many great swimming spots in his area – so he can always switch it up! Shane also does a bit of pool swimming every now and then to learn new skills and keep his form looking sharp. 

While Shane and other swimmers won’t need wetsuits for the crystal-clear Fijian waters, Shane has found himself some neoprene jammers – giving him a bit of buoyancy but still allowing him to enjoy the tropical waters. Awesome idea mate…. 

Shane and Alyson will be joined by few of their ocean swimming pals in Fiji and are looking forward to making new friends during the event. Enter now to swim alongside Shane, Alyson and their whole crew!
