I have started the TI drills for freestyle and am up to the Shark Fin.

If you are doing the shark fin you are using a very old set of TI drills. I think the shark fin was abandoned about 2004. If you are sinking when doing the shark fin it is probably because you are rotated too much or 'stacked' as they say. if you point the elbow a little further out towards the side of the pool it may help to avoid excessive rotation.

I think the shark fin can still be useful to learn a high elbow recovery but if you have sinking tendencies it's best to modify it slightly, I think.

Perhaps a TI coach will comment,
