Step 4: Stay calm when water enters the tube

You could either rise to the water surface and release the mouthpiece. Or you could stay in the water and unleash a full blast through the tube if there’s only little amount of water. However, we’d suggest you to get back to surface and breathe around the mouthpiece if there is too much water in the tube.
