• In beaches, why does the water get deeper and then shallow again before getting deep?

    In several beaches I've been to in Florida and Europe the water initially gets deeper, then out a certain distance it get shallow and I can stand on the floor again properly before diving deep into the distance. Is there an explanation for this?

  • How do you feel about reading while lifeguarding?

    So I am a lifeguard, on my 3rd year right now, and I have been working 6 months at this local pool that is very small. It is only 4 lanes wide (25 meters long) and the shallow end is 2 feet deep while the “deep” end is 4 1/2 feet deep.

    So I am a lifeguard, on my 3rd year right now, and I have been working 6 months at this local pool that is very small. It is only 4 lanes wide (25 meters long) and the shallow end is 2 feet deep while the “deep” end is 4 1/2 feet deep. I work the morning shift so it’s only lap swim my entire shift and since it’s around 6am there’s really only a few people in the pool at a time, typically 1-3 swimmers in the pool at a time. So after 5 months it would get pretty boring, even with the radio the boredom gets to me when there’s routinely 1 person doing laps at a leisurely pace. So I started reading a book, I would sit in the guard chair with the guard tube under my arms and hold the book in front of me, so after half a page or so I would look up and check on the person swimming. It’s not like I don’t check the pool or kick my feet up, I still look prepared, I constantly am surveying it and look up, if anything I feel more focused when I am reading and lifeguard than when I’m 3 hours in and I’ve gotten so bored I just stare off at the wall. I should also note this pool only has 1 guard on at a time so it does get very boring not having someone to talk to. Also if there a young child in the pool or there’s more than 1 swimmer per lane I never read. Recently a new swimmer who comes in the morning has complained to my boss and now I’m in big trouble. I was wondering what are you thoughts on my situation. Should I be punished and restricted from reading during the dead hours?

  • How do I convince my really strict parents to let me get out of swim training if I have a sore knee?

  • I am 16, New to swimming, what are the chances of me becoming Professional , also tell me steps and things I should do!?

    Best answer: As a swimmer myself, if you are new to swimming at 16 it is EXTREMELY unlikely that you will be successful as a professional swimmer. Many professional swimmers (not all, just many) have been swimming since they were 6-9 years old.

  • What clothes are easiest to swim in?

    Tomorrow, at school, I have to swim in the pool with clothes on. Apparently that's something we have to learn. What clothes are easiest to swim in? It can't be a t-shirt, but what kind of jumper? I already have pants, but I'll still appreciate suggestions. I need an answer quickly!

  • Do you know how to swim? If so, how do you float without drowning?

    Best answer: I do know how to swim. You float by laying on your back with your arms and legs spread out to distribute/spread your body weight out. Just like if someone is on thin ice over a lake and it starts cracking they lay down on their stomach in that case and spread their arms and legs to make a more even amount of weight.

  • Are most blacks aren't good swimmers? And why?

    Best answer: "Racism" is a proper word here because for the longest time blacks were banned from private AND PUBLIC pools. Also, inner cities where many blacks lived did not have pools nearby. In recent years blacks may have decided swimming was not that important ... or they could not afford to pay for swim lessons... show more
