A wetsuit called the Floater is getting people in the water after decades of living in fear.
Traditionally, there are flotation belts, but they can be difficult to use with a tricky center of gravity that can leave the wearer face down. Life jackets often ride up on the neck and can be uncomfortable and bulky.
Donna Mudge, a resident of Santa Barbara, needed something special to conquer her fear. Now in her mid-fifties, she never learned to swim. “Every time I was swimming, I feared that I would sink. And when I panicked, I would sink,” said Mudge.
