I dreaded the swimming section during physical education. Floatation devices still did not help.
I've always loved the water and love going to the beach but if I want to complete other things to do such as learning how to surf and becoming a lifesaver it's important to learn how to swim - plus I don't want to look like a loser when little kids can swim better than me.
i've been afraid of the water and i have no idea why. after experiencing snorkeling, i want to know how to swim so i can dive someday.
I can't swim. I almost drowned on a beach in the Dominican Republic when I was 10 years old and have been terrified of deep water since.
