Takes Major Guts to Swim Off New Zealand

I copied this amazing photo taken by vetstreet of Adam Walker doing a swim that most of us couldn't even walk.  These Cook Straits are known for the presence of sharks. This photo captures one dolphin of a pod of dolphins that accompanied Adam for a while on his swim.  It was reported that a great white shark also accompanied Adam for an hour or so on the swim and that the bunch of dolphins kept the shark safely away from the swimmer. 
What strikes me is the body position and form of the swimmer.  His legs are high; his body above the waist is quite high in the water.  I wish I had some of that body position.
