Ruth, an expert in most things aquatic (she swims and surfs as well as freedives), is happiest in the ocean and under the water. Ruth Osborn is a competitive swimmer from childhood, a surfer for many years and she started freediving in Ibiza in 2015 certifying as an AIDA 2 that year, AIDA 3 in 2016, AIDA 4 in 2017 and as an AIDA Instructor in 2018. She is a UK ASA qualified swim instructor.
Her favorite place to be is in or under the water, preferably in Ibiza or the tropics. She has competed in open water competitions in Ibiza distances ranging from 2-7km and was on the podium for most of them. She runs a successful private swim tuition business in Ibiza, Ibiza Swim, which she set up ten years ago and (prior to getting hooked on surfing) she was coach for two seasons of Ibiza Masters and Club Natacio Portus – two of the local swim teams. She loves sharing her knowledge, expertise and passions for swimming and the water and watching as swim technique, along with enjoyment of swimming, is transformed under her tutelage.
