Body surfing with shinfinTM fins, Michael avoids the muscle pain, sore ankles and raw heels that he gets with traditional foot fins. What’s more, these issues can be dangerous. So shinfinTM fins give him a comfortable and safe way to body surf. In fact, he likes them so much that he then bought three pairs for his grandchildren!
Michael’s review from Juneau, USA
Now that I’m older, I need a better (correct if you will) way to boost my ability to catch waves using my leg muscles. I’m most fortunate that I have my shinfinTM fins. They provide a comfortable and safe way to use these aging muscles. No more painful muscle cramps and bruises. You have my gratitude. My old Voit fins just about killed me with sore ankles and raw heels.”
Michael’s review: Body surfing fins for no muscle, ankle or heel pain
“I am not sure which magazine I first saw them in, but the real help came from a website that discussed body surfing and the best options, for specific users. I’m a senior and have completed medical treatment which has left me with less strength and stamina.”
“I grew up in Manhattan Beach, California and began my body surfing there, before I could afford a surfboard. Now living in Juneau, Alaska, enjoying the wonderful beaches and surf. I surf in Yakutat, Alaska, about 30 minutes by air north and west of Juneau.”
“Thank you very much for your response, help, and of course for the shinfinTM fins.”
I would be interested to hear how you are going with them if you get a moment to email me.
“I grew up in California and spent a great deal of time at the beaches of Los Angeles, using the old traditional fins for body surfing. Now that I’m older, I need a better (correct if you will) way to boost my ability to catch waves using my leg muscles.”

Many thanks for your kind reply Michael and I’m very happy to hear how you are enjoying your fins. Yes, they give a much more natural feel in your body, and no cramps, so we get a lot of feedback like this. So happy body surfing in Alaska.
“Sure Marc, glad to support a long needed product!”
Michael (3 months later, after buying 3 more pairs)
“These next three pairs of shinfinTM fins are for three of my grandchildren in Newport, Oregon. They are 13-9 in age and love the ocean. They are very avid swimmers and are into body surfing too. So this is a fine opportunity to help them along.”
“When I was about their age in Manhattan Beach California, my old Voit fins just about killed me with sore ankles and raw heels. We’re talking 1952, just a little while back! I am hoping to go to visit and of course take mine and the four of us can hit the surf together. Thanks for the help.”
That’s great Michael, so please wish your grandchildren many years of happy swimming and body surfing with their new fins. All the best and many thanks for helping to spread the shinfinTM paradigm in your part of the world.
