Great control & no foot pain snorkeling fins


Bill gets great control and maneuverability, without any foot pain, when he snorkels and swims with shinfin fins. They leave his feet free and don’t bend or hurt his feet. In contrast, normal flippers aggravate his feet so they only allow him to swim for short periods.

Bill’s review from Rockingham, Australia

“The shinfin fins were perfect. Everything I had hoped they would be. Great control and maneuverability. Best of all no pain in the foot. So I was in the water till I turned blue. Many thanks for a great invention.”

Bill’s review: Snorkeling fins with great control & no foot pain

“The shinfin fins were supposed to be a surprise Christmas present (even though I ordered and paid for them). I first saw them on Beyond Tomorrow on TV. I enjoy snorkeling but have a problem with my foot which is aggravated by normal flippers only allowing me to swim for short periods.”

“As shinfin fins don’t bend the foot, I thought that they would be ideal for me. I first tried them in a local pool and after a few adjustments I was finally swimming in a straight line. We live close to the beach in Rockingham Western Australia. One hot day last week my wife and I went to the beach for a swim and I went snorkeling. The shinfin fins were perfect. Everything I had hoped they would be. Great control and maneuverability. Best of all no pain in the foot. So I was in the water till I turned blue.”

“My only problem is that I think I have the straps on too tight, as they left a deep ridge in my shin. Not painful though. We have a hot week coming up this week. So we will be off to the beach a few times. I’m sure I will find a comfortable position.”

“Many thanks for a great invention.”

Thank you for your kind email. I’m glad you like them so much. We get a lot of feedback like this.

As you say, adjust the position on your leg a bit to find the most comfortable position for you.

Conclusion

shinfin fins leave your feet free and don’t hurt your feet. So they give you great control and maneuverability in the water, without any foot pain, when you snorkel, body surf or swim etc. In contrast, normal fins often aggravate your feet and so reduce the time you can spend in the water.
