Float Tube Fishing Fins

The shinfin™ streamlined kick technique works well when used as float tube fishing fins. You kick in a similar way if you are sitting in a float tube, pontoon, kick boat or belly boat. So you kick to propel yourself backwards. You still kick from your hip, without bending your knees too much, even though your legs are of course sloping down in the water. So power comes from the big muscles in your thighs and torso without straining your calf muscles, ankles and feet like foot flippers.

What’s wrong with foot flippers?

Most likely you already know some of the problems with regular foot flippers. I get so many emails about the issues people have with their foot flippers.

Foot flipper problems are there because they fit on your feet. So often, they don’t even fit properly – too wide, too narrow, not enough sizes etc. So they hurt your feet. Then they stress your ankles, strain your calf muscles and twist your knees too much. They also change your kick to a “bicycle kick” with too much knee-bend. Heavy and bulky, they tend to fall off and sink. Often they break or rot. And, of course, they trip you up when you walk! Leave all these problems behind when you switch to shinfin™ leg fins.
