    I am fascinated seeing deep sea divers and surfers. Though I don't know how to swim and don't think I will ever learn. I am so much afraid of water especially a vast open sea, the sight itself makes me sick.

    Just seeking, can you share your experience swimming deep down underwater. Were you using oxygen mask? or just freely swimming.

    I am to choose any of the water sports, I will go for surfing.

    Swimming is easy once you relax the more tense you are the less you float you also have to keep air in your lungs and different ethics have different mucle density it's also a good skill to have you may not go out to sea but what if your car runs off the road into a steam or river or there's a flood.

    I passed my instructers certificate at 12yo! but they did not hand the certificate over until I turned 16yo the minimum age to receive it!
    Did not stop the school using me to teach swimming though from 12yo!

    I enjoy reading responses here. I'll surely try and get me a coach for swimming lessons, though we don't have any water body where I live.

    Yes, many times and I can say that it is one of the best sensations in the world. :rolleyes: You feel so free and it seems like you have no limits on where you really can get. I think everyone should have the right to do this at least once in their lives. :)

    I don't know how to swim and there are no seas in my home country (I live in a landlocked country), therefore, I have never been deep down the ocean. However, I have this dream to dive into the sea, if not too deep, at least to some level. This could be an experience of life time. In order to dive into the sea, I need to travel to another country though.

    I have been taught how to swim at a very young age. My whole family consists of swimmers and therefore it was logical that it was my turn to learn next! I actually love swimming. I often go to the pool and have a relaxing day. We even drive down to the seaside, once or twice per year - we rent a bungalow or do a camp near the sea. So when you wake up, it takes literally 5 minutes to go for a swim. It is heavens!

    I have done all. I've tried swimming deep without the oxygen, just the mask, and also with the oxygen tank. We had this scuba-diving course when I was in high school where they taught us how to do it. That all happened in a big pool though.

    The only thing that I dislike about the sea and swimming deep is all the potential danger that lurks below. I have recently started to develop a fear of the deeps. I am okay if I can see what's under me, but if I can't... then I don't swim far from the shore.

    I love the ocean. If me and my family wants an excursion, it will be byvthe beach. Me and my wife would spend hours snorkling and enjoying nature's beauty. Last trip that we did was in Palawan Philippines. With just a few steps away from the shorelines, you can already enjoy marine life.

    I don't know how to swim but I believe I would be able to swim instinctively since its about creating buoyancy to keep afloat. I dread drowning and remember when I was swimming along a coastline, barely making it afloat when some young men warned me that he I went beyond the point I was standing, I would drown. I have never been so scared,
