maybe because of experience.. maybe they try to swim but they have phobia because of they were drown or something..its because of what they experience when they encounter waters..

there can be two reasons, according to me. 1. a person doesnot know swimming 2. a person might have a previous horrifying experience with water.

there may be many reasons. i am afraid to put my head under water, i feel than as if i was drowning. i mean if my nose feels water i immeditately feel lack of air i get into panic and must at once go out of water. it is really unpleasant becoz i cant take bath with relax, sometimes even cant wash my hair, coz many times i have to take deep breath everytimewater touches my nose! as i remmeber i didnt expierence any traumatic event. it started when i was about 15. it's shame because i like water so much.

Some people, they fear water because of some experience that relates to water that made them traumatise. I do not really know any other reasons.
