Hi Nicodemus, could you elaborate a little more on the water line hitting you in the forehead. I thought in TI we where looking for the water to just skim over our caps. My head is about 6-8 inches under water if i look straight down. Please elborate on how i get my head positioned to have the water line hit my forehead? I see most swimmers with this type of head position. I even notice that my TI instructors have had the water line hit them in the forehead. Yet i am confused about the teachings of the water passing over your head when you swim in TI. My wife said that my head was so low in the water i do not produce a bow wave. Hence i do not belive that breathing is as easy as it should be relative to others.
