Fingertips In The Ocean

Fingertips In The Ocean

Stroke work and proper swimming technique are so strongly emphasized by coaches of pool swimmers. The same should be true of open water swimming coaches.

The further you go, the more sense it makes for your arm strokes, body position, head position and kick to be as perfectly balanced and efficient as possible. For example, even in the ocean, roughwater or not, your fingertips should be pointing downwards as the hand enters the water on your early catch.
