Stick people never need to learn how to swim. They always float on water. Even when they're jumping into the deepest or stormiest part of the ocean or the angriest waves, they stay on top of things and never drown because there's nothing weighing them down.

They carry no clothing and no baggage; nothing that they didn't have when they were first drawn. When it comes to jumping head first into things, anything a stick person drags along will only weigh it down and make it harder to stay afloat. Stick people know this and "stick" to the basics. They know that their drawing was perfect to begin with.
