Spring is just around the corner, and that means people are starting to think about open water swimming again! The Mar-Apr issue of SWIMMER Magazine is the annual issue devoted to the discipline of OW swimming.
The May-June 2013 issue of SWIMMER Magazine features an article that discusses the relative effectiveness of the sculling S-pull (“propeller”) and the deep-catch pull (“paddle”). USMS has recently uploaded a YouTube video to accompany the article.
