Freestyle Snorkel At its most basic level, the Freestyle Snorkel allows athletes of any ability to swim at normal and much slower speeds with perfect stability and a full range of motion. These skills are the most critical aspect for novice level swimmers to master and for advanced swimmers to perfect. The Freestyle Snorkel is designed specifically for freestyle swimmers so that they achieve a lower head position. The curved tube places the head and body in the proper alignment so that training can be optimized. Swimming with a snorkel allows the athlete to adjust his or her stroke to the maximum efficiency.
