Rob Case is the creator of XSWIM and the Surfing Paddling Academy (SurfingPaddling.com), an avid surfer, swimmer, water polo player, and father of two very energetic boys.
From the age of three he competed in swimming and has continued to find his passion in or on top of the water."With two small kids and a full time job it was hard to find time to stay in shape for all the different sports I love. Swimming laps got boring, going to the gym was time consuming."
While living in San Diego, CA he created XSWIM as a method to stay in shape for his favorite pastimes. He combined his years of studying fitness, swimming, and surfing paddling to create the XSWIM training program. After receiving requests from clients to coach them on paddling technique, he created the Surfing Paddling Academy based on the scientific studies of swimming and it's link to surfing paddling.
Rob is one of the top instructors in the world for surfing paddling technique and the results speak for themselves.

With Thanks: Special thanks to all XSWIM and Surfing Paddling Academy community members. Without your support and feedback, XSWIM and the Surfing Paddling Academy would just be shared with a few people instead of the thousands of lives it has impacted. I am extremely grateful to the YMCA and Boys and Girls Club organizations for allowing me the facilities to run classes and test the XSWIM programs. Many thanks to my brother and to my friends who encouraged and help me get started. Thanks to my late mother who instilled strong values for fitness, travel, and for living your passion. You are here in spirit, always. Most thanks to my lovely wife and my boys. You are my number one passion and I hope to set a good example for you.
