Thanks Janos and Coach Suzanne. You both make very valid points...which is exactly why I asked for your help!

Buy the videos!

I can strongly recommend the 'Perpetual Motion Freestyle' videos. They start from a very basic level (Superman glide) and progress logically through each step. You can download them from the digital...

I used the Aquasphere Seal XP for quite awhile. At first I had a problem getting a reliable seal that would last more than a few lengths. After awhile I figured out that I was over-tightening the...
