One video a week. For merfolk everywhere...
THE BROTHERS have worked with filmmakers to make shorts and sometimes adverts for wild swimming and… cereal!?
Also included are highlights and trailers from events they've participated in and led over the years.
One day these videos will span all their expeditions together. From the early days of hopping off rock-stacks in Cumbria to whatever swansong adventure they attempt as withered geriatrics.
THE WSB CHANNEL
Last year the boys took to YouTube to keep a record of their training, events and expeditions. You’ll find a slew of different content in there, from kit reviews to swim spot hunts.
They aim to release one video a week.

The Wild Lady of Loch Broom, Beth Harrison
On Saturday 26th August 2017, the brothers swam the full 12.8km length of Loch Broom, in the Scottish Highlands. They did the swim in memory of their Grandma Wild and also to raise awareness about the plight of the Scottish Wildcat with Scottish Wildcat Action.
They were joined in the water by Norman and Colin, a whole host of happy lochsiders, old friends, new friends, cousins, aunties and uncles, girlfriends and Mum. The swim ended on the lochside at Clachan Church, where their Grandma Wild is buried.

Meandering Down The Mole, Russell Barnett
This short video filmed and edited by Russell Barnett follows a pod of UK swimmers on a river safari down the River Mole, in Surrey. The two day event took place in the summer of 2018 and included swimming, camping and yoga.
The Wild Swimming Brothers partnered with Adventure Uncovered and called it: Meandering Down The Mole.
Force Of Nature, W.K Kellog
Middle Brother Calum took to the ruffled waters of Bewl Water - it was an icy 2-degrees - in this promotion for plant-based No Added Sugar Granola, mixed with crunchy almonds, cashews and coconut.
The advert was shot for W.K. Kelloggs.
Into The Maelstrom, Julian Oczkowski
Created by photographer/filmmaker Julian Oczkowski, this conceptual trailer for the Into The Maelstrom expedition was shot at Jack's local swim spot in Tynemouth, Newcastle.
In this video you'll see Little Brother Jack heading out for one of his last training swims before he flew to Norway to swim across the Saltstraumen and Moskstraumen.
Wild, Beth Harrison
This visually striking short was created for Channel 4 Random Acts by filmmaker Beth Harrison. Beth explores how an immersive experience in nature can help free us from the tensions and pressures of modern life.
Durdle Door Wild Swim, Jordi Castan
Filmed and edited together by Jordi Castan, this video follows the WSB/Adventure Uncovered swims at Durdle Door. The event involved a motley group of like-minded swimmers and the awesome Adventure Uncovered team.
It was the first event the brothers took part in with AU and a chance for guests to experience the Jurassic Coast first-hand. In total the weekend included four swims and one washing machine ride in Man o' War cove, as well as conservation talks and lots of hearty meals.
