  • No, not really.
    Swimming entails two things - floating and forward propulsion.
    The air in your lungs will make you naturally buoyant, provided you stay calm and breathe normally, but efficient forward propulsion means being able to use your arms properly (not just kicking with your legs).
    Imagine you're in the situation below. Do you:
    A- Shit yourself and get swept whichever way the waves take you?
    B- Stay calm and swim through the waves?

  • If you can't swim without a kickboard or something then you can't swim.

  • Anyone an swim. It's panic or cold that drowns people.
    A human body floats, divers need to have weights to stay under.

  • I wouldn't say you can swim.

  • It means you can swim as much as riding a bike with training wheels means you can ride a bike.
