Default Wavelets to wash over face

I watched the Webinar last night and one of the many points that was pointed out was while swimming backstroke - to let the head be fully supported by the water and you would know you were accomplishing this if the wavelets washed over ones face.
Over the last month my backstroke has been feeling inefficient and awkward. This morning at the pool I checked out the head position and sure enough it was slightly raised. Once I allowed the small waves to wash over my face my stroke smoothed out and stroke count went down and perceived effort went way down.

My front facing strokes were okay.

Enjoyed the Webinar and look forward to the next one.
May we swim with ease at the speeds we choose.
