Why? You are weighed down anyway. What propels you forward are the flippers. Without them it's hard to swim along the top of the ocean

A degree of confidence in water is obviously not necessary then.

I remember when we went diving in Mexico off the Isla de las Mujeres, we walked backwards into the sea and then submerged when the water came chest-high. Coming back, the same thing. I didn't swim on the surface at all. When I was diving off Quitay in Chile, we went out in a boat and fell backwards off the side. Again no surface swimming although I did vomit when I came back up as the sea was extremely rough.
