WOWSA Nominee 2019

In a sport of life and death, high achievements are run-of-the-mill. Level Five is so honored to be in the company of giants and recognized for our
“Open Water: San Francisco” calendar of landscapes!

World Open Water Swimming Association, one of the very few official bodies of the sport, recognized Zina’s artwork and nominated her calendar
for Offering of the Year 2019.

The calendar is a work of passion and a paean to the beauty and wild nature of San Francisco’s coastline. Composed of twelve landscapes from a
swimmer’s perspective it follows a Bay to Breakers route along the shore: from the Bay Bridge, through Aquatic Park, past Alcatraz and Fort Mason,
through Golden Gate Bridge and out to Cliff House and Ocean Beach.
You will experience these sites like you have never seen before!
