Confusing[edit]

This article seems confusing and unclear. Can somebody tag this (or show me how?)

Toe directionality[edit]

"The toes point in the direction of motion to mimic a hydrofoil."

Perhaps I'm misreading this somehow, but it seems to me this is backwards. The toes point AWAY from the direction of motion (ie. behind you) making the legs and feet more streamlined causing less drag. If they pointed in the direction of motion the feet would cause significant drag. --StarkRG (talk) 21:33, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

Simplified the language. "Toes point away from the body." --Whoosit (talk) 15:37, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

"use a modified flutter kick such as the frog kick"[edit]

This sounds like the frog kick were a modified flutter kick. I assume that the author meant that one bends the knees _similar_ to the frog kick. --Data2 (talk) 20:42, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
