Steve notices thatshinfinTM fins encourage him to kick from his hip with his whole leg when he snorkels. So he finds he uses far less energy and doesn’t get tired because streamlining his body to swim faster is more efficient. Also, his feet are free to wear his shinfinTM fins with diving boots so he can safely walk in and out of the water, avoiding sharp objects and marine life in reef areas.
Steve’s review from Perth, Australia
“For snorkeling they are excellent, being able to walk in and out of the water quite easily. By using the whole of the leg as a kicking action, you use far less energy and do not get tired.”
Steve’s review: Snorkeling fin kick with whole leg
“They have taken a bit of getting used to. One has to remember not to bend the knees and use all the leg. For snorkeling they are excellent, being able to walk in and out of the water quite easily.”
“By using the whole of the leg as a kicking action, you use far less energy and do not get tired.”
“I wear diving boots with them, allowing access to reef areas and no problems with sharp objects or marine life.”
I’m glad you find them excellent for snorkeling. We get a lot of feedback like that. Are you using streamlined booties that let you flex your ankles? That works best.
You have obviously got used to the streamlined kick. So have you noticed that your normal no-fins freestyle has improved too? Lots of people notice this.
shinfinTM fins guide you to kick from your hip with your whole leg when swimming and snorkeling. This lifts your body horizontal and streamlined so you use less energy and don’t get as tired. This is why the fins also give a better leg workout for swim training.
Furthermore, they don’t tire your ankles or chafe your heels like foot fins. You can also wear them with flexible, streamlined water shoes to walk more safely into and out of the water. Then you can avoid sharp objects and avoid damaging marine life in reef areas.
