Hello, I’m Tricia, 

Founder of WildPaces

From The Beginning

Having swam throughout my childhood in competitions or for pleasures on holidays, I found my way back to swimming throughout a difficult period in my life. I needed an outlet, finding the strength to change my life in its totality. Swimming allowed me to let go of all everyday stresses and find focus on the important things with the added bonus keeping my body in shape and healthy but allowing me to eat the foods I enjoyed without worrying too much.


I got fed up with swimming in straight lanes, chlorine water and uninspiring places.My love for hiking in unusual places and the newly found interest in swimming became an intriguing combination to explore the outdoor and wild landscapes. Sometimes the only way to get to the next climbing section was through a lake, swimming. I soon started to swim in lakes, rivers and the open sea with friends on weekends and holidays. 

And So Came The Right Equipment...

To stay warm and dry during my trips. It became a small but significant obsession. I wanted to enjoy outdoor adventures and go further and try trail sports in unique and special places. This prompted me to start my own business selling reliable, hardwearing equipment to take along in order for my valuables to be protected and my clothing to stay dry during my trips.WildPaces was born.
