Improve fin-free swim technique


By swimming with shinfin fins, Matt has improved his fin-free kick technique too. So the fins corrected his kick technique and that transferred to him swimming faster without fins as well. He was so happy with them that he bought a pair for his 81 year old grandfather.

Matt’s review from Tannum Sands, Australia

“The fins are fantastic. They have encouraged me to kick correctly. I’ve found my ‘fin-free’ technique has improved to a considerable extent. Either that or they’ve shortened the pool! Great idea, great product – Cheers!”

Matt’s review: Correct & improve fin-free swim technique

“The fins are fantastic. They have encouraged me to kick correctly. They took a swim to get used to but I think it’s because my technique was out. I’ve found my ‘fin-free’ technique has improved to a considerable extent. Either that or they’ve shortened the pool!”

“Bought a second pair for my grandfather for Christmas. He swims almost every morning, for the last 30 years (close to 80!). I’m sure he will enjoy them as much as I have.”

“Saw your shinfin fins on Beyond Tomorrow. Asked around shops in Brisbane and Byron Bay for them over the last few months and many staff had heard of them.”

“Great idea, great product – Cheers!”

Many thanks for your kind reply Matt. Yes, we get a lot of feedback like this. It is fascinating how the streamlined shinfin kick pattern also stays on for your “no-fins” swimming. Furthermore, getting the legs right is essential to getting the body position and arm pull right too. So your whole technique and speed improves.

“To clarify, my Grandad is 81. They’ll assist him to keep swimming for a long time to come.”
