Understanding the principle of buoyancy

Understanding the principle of buoyancy is a key concept towards learning how to duck dive and descend underwater. Many people experience difficulty with diving head-first underwater. This is because the water pushes your body upwards at a force which is usually greater than your body weight. Therefore, you must overcome this surplus of buoyant force by using techniques such as the duck dive.
