    Okay I know I might catch some flak for this, because the CWST isn't a terribly hard test, but I guess my swimming skills arent as good as I thought:rolleyes:

    Took my first CWST today, did fine with the 5m drop with rifle and shedding my LBE underwater, however I didn't pass the 10 minute continuous swim or the 25m gear swim.

    I'm most curious if any of you have found a particular style that works for you when doing the 25m gear swim-on your back, on your stomach, on your side with one arm? If this makes any difference, I'm tall, 6'3" and 150 lbs.

    Any other tips would really be appreciated, I really want to pass this next time.

    thanks tpg, that does help. im gonna try to hit the pool a couple times a week and work on my backstroke/staying afloat:shake:

    anybody know if the 10 minute continuous swim is any stroke you want? they werent clear on in, i saw a lot of people doing the backstroke but i am pretty sure its whatever style/form you want....
