ABOUT

Swim Oregon was born in 2019, after Janie Malloy returned from a scouting trip to Europe for her event, the Naked Goddess Swim. Seeing how people around the world experienced open water swimming, or didn't, she was inspired to share where the Oregon locals swim, in the gorgeous, Pacific Northwest lakes and rivers. Janie plans to  increase the love and joy of open water, wild swimming, by making it convenient, accessible, adventurous, and safe.
