Default with the snorkel. you don't need to swivel your head!

It is a subtle difference but I practiced under switch drills today with a snorkel, and with a snorkel it works better to keep your eyes fixed a lttle ahead of you but still towards the bottom

Any suggestions?

THANKS in advance!!!

when you lose the snorkel...
you will have to learn how to swivel your head
and take a breath....

take one step at a time and keep us posted!
