Joan is not a good swimmer, so she practised with her shinfinTM fins in a pool first before using them for snorkeling on her vacation. She found pool practice helpful because shinfinTM fins guide her to learn to swim with a better swimming style. Her smooth swimming kick then transferred across to work great for her snorkeling too.
Joan’s review from Vancouver, Canada
“I practised first in the pool, and then used them snorkeling. They worked great! I am not a good swimmer. So it was really good to pool practise first.”
Joan’s review: Practising with fins in a pool first before snorkeling
“I used them in Hawaii for a recent vacation. I practised first in the pool, and then used them snorkeling. They worked great!”
That is wonderful to hear that they worked great for your snorkeling. Yes, I do suggest practising in a pool first. This helps a lot of people to get used to them. I’m interested, do you think it was necessary for you, or do you feel you could have got used to them snorkeling straight away?
“Yes, I think it was helpful for me to practise in the pool first. It’s been many years since I’ve been swimming. In fact, I am not a good swimmer. So it was really good to pool practise first.”
Yes that makes perfect sense. All the best.
If you are not a good swimmer, it is recommended that you practise with your shinfinTM fins in a pool first before using them for other activities like snorkeling. This is because shinfinTM fins also help you learn to swim. They teach you a better swimming style with a smooth swimming kick which transfers across to work great for snorkeling and other water activities.
