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.

Update. I got ill from swallowing too much piss and went deaf in one ear.
If you can't talk about the problem, how are you ever going to even start talking about the solution?
