Water can be lifesaving and life-threatening. Regardless of whether you are in a shallow pool or consumed by the roughness of the raging sea, Clint provides thorough step by step instructions to protect oneself from captivity and the possibility of being drowned.‘When it comes to self-preservation in water,’ writes Clint, ‘the key to survival is breath control. With the lungs full of air, the human body is buoyant–so deep breaths and quick exhales are key.’

‘Panicking,’ states the retired Navy Seal, ‘which can lead to hyperventilation, is the number-one enemy to survival. Restraints and body positioning may make breathing a challenge, but repositioning is always within the Nomad’s grasp. In shallow waters, use a sinking and bouncing approach…to travel toward shore, ricocheting off the seabed or lake floor up to the surface for an inhale.’
