Sent from my Shell PhoneThat's an interesting question, Auquita! What were your results Googling? There's a lot of info here on this site, finding it shouldn't be difficult.

Once you've practised you'll have more to share, and those who've succeeded can see how best to help you. All the best!

I agree that there are videos that can explain it better than we can. But the basics are that for bubble rings you want to lie back so that you're facing straight towards the surface. You want to exhale in the direction the bubble will travel, which is obviously straight up. You want to be a motionless as possible. Make your lips into a circle and exhaled slightly. Being motionless and facing towards the surface are probably the hardest parts since you'll want to float towards the surface, and when you lie on your back water will rush into your nose. To stay down, you'll either need to partially empty your lungs until you sink, or you could hold onto something that holds you down, like dive weights or the bottom rung of a pool ladder. Later with practice you might be able to stay down by kicking to propel yourself down and overcome your natural buoyancy, but as a beginner I'd use one of the other methods I just described for staying down. To prevent water from rushing into your nose, you can either pinch your nose with one hand, or you can wear a dive mask that covers your nose, or you can just let water rush into your nose and get used to it.

Hope that helps!

Sent from my Shell PhoneThey have an underwater tricks thread you need to check out.

I only know how to do bubble rings
The way I make my bubble rings is I go underwater at least 5ft, lie flat on my back, hold my nose (with my hand out of the way), stick my tounge out a little while keep my mouth in a circle and say the word "Plow."

Tips:
If you're more buoyant like me it can be helpful to hold on to a poolside ladder or stair rail so that you stay still. Some people also use weight belts to they are neutral in water (not good for kids though.)

The water has to be still or the ring will break.

It is helpful to imagine you are sticking a tiny dounut on your tounge when you stick it out. Then open your mouth. [emoji1]

Hand-flipper-fin-things (idk what they are called) are helpful when you are trying to get to the bottom without thrashing around to much.

Advanced:
If you go deeper 10ft or so and make a bubble ring you can swim though it if you have enough propulsion from your tail.

Hope that helps
