shinfinTM fins leave Phil’s feet free to move for shallow water beach breaks and power him for big surf bodyboarding and body surfing. Also, he sometimes wears shinfinTM fins and regular foot fins together. What’s more, Phil appreciates that shinfinTM fins don’t give him calf cramps or toe rash like regular foot fins.
Phil’s review from Huntington Beach, USA
“I really like the fact that when I am body surfing or bodyboarding in a beach break, my feet can be free to move in shallow water. In real big surf, I can increase my propulsion greatly by putting on my regular foot fins also! Thanks for your nice product! Thanks for putting a great new fin on the surf market.”
Phil’s review: Body surfing & bodyboarding fins for beach breaks and big surf
“I wanted to get back to you on my shinfinTM fins. I really like the fact that when I am body surfing or bodyboarding in a beach break, my feet can be free to move in shallow water. In real big surf, I can increase my propulsion greatly by putting on my regular foot fins also! The fins do tend to lose position some in big wipeouts, but my foot fins could come off at times also. Thanks for your nice product!”
Many thanks for your kind email Phil. I’m happy to hear that you like the shinfinTM fins so much. And also in combination with foot flippers for big surf. We have other customers who do that too. So I guess you have strong legs!
If the fins lose position some in big wipeouts, do you find that they straighten out again by themselves after a few kicks? Or do you have to tug them back into position with your hands?
“My shinfinTM fins tend to self-adjust to big wipeouts most times.”
“I hardly ever lose my foot fins off my feet but I guess the propulsion you need is always missed after any big wipeout!”
“I used to use the old Voit (USA company) UDT fins for many years and don’t know if you have heard of them. They were real calf cramping fins! No more toe rash from those fins as your new fin idea is also ending any chance of toe rash! I always worried about toe scars from the Voit fins getting infected and it finally happened in Hawaii once. I got growths that were hard to get treated.”
“Thanks for putting a great new fin on the surf market. You can use my testimonial if you wish.”
Thank you for your kind permission Phil. Personal recommendation is very important to get a new product like this going. So I really appreciate it and the shinfinTM word is spreading well.
Yes, I know about the Voit fins and appreciate your old problems with calf cramps and toe rash. Not fun!
Body surfing and bodyboarding with shinfinTM fins leaves your feet free to move for shallow water beach breaks and powers you for big surf. You can even wear shinfinTM fins and regular foot fins together, if your legs are strong enough.
