Not bad but Arms Too wide and too far forward

You'll struggle to breathe form there

Tap your temple with your thumb and enter just in front (ear hop)

And when arm extends extend until your shoulder in touching your cheek or chin

this will rotate you more and you'll be able to breathe comfortably

You are too wide and it is stifling your rotation

When your bicep / shoulder is touching your chin just glide and turn your head 90 degress to the side and you'll breathe air

In full swimming you'll turn face as your spear arm is extending so your ear will be laying on your shoulder

Just hop over your ear with your recovering hand and spear straight forward in front of your shoulder until full extention

Do this

Yes, I'm quite flat in the water eve with very little to no momentum.

I prefer to just glide gracefully. Anything I do compared to this just makes it worse.

Thats perfect i was correcting your deadman float picture you posted with your hips and legs lying low

I intended to post my Boomer aquatic signature. Maybe it's the same as the dead man float.
