I grew up in California suburbs and I was lucky enough to have a pool. That meant I got swimming lessons when I was five. They teach you the basics like the back float, doggy paddle, and treading water. Then you eventually advance to the freestyle stroke, breaststroke, backstroke, and butterfly stroke. Everybody should learn how to swim. Swimming is the art of moving through water without drowning. It could save your life if you’re ever caught in a flash flood, if your boat capsizes, or if your plane crash-lands in the Hudson River. There are lots of reasons why you should learn how to swim. You can swim for fun, survival, or exercise. And it’s an essential part of skinny dipping.
