Im one 6 trainning days away from finishing Surface Rescue Swimmer School, holy crap swimming underwater is beyond hard. TONS of respect to guys who can complete 50+meters underwater.

Out of curiousity, do they make you guys do a somersault after your head gets underwater, and then start your 50 or is it just a straight shot?

Open water or the pool ? If it's in the pool, just wait till you get in the open water off the coast and have to do the same with a mask, snorkel and if your lucky fins. :D

Use the speed stroke but keep your head near the water. LOL.

My class proctor wasnt given permission to take us out to the open ocean, all we did was a mile long bay swim in coronado, that was pretty hard so I can imagine open water off the coast at night in a terrible sea state. We have to keep our snorkel in our mouths when we do underwaters. I actually got screamed at and threatend today for spitting it out after an underwater sprint

I could tell a story about my ex-wife spitting out a snorkle while we were on our honeymoon in Key West, .......but I won't go there.....:D BLUF - keep the flippin' snorkle in your mouth!
