Freestyle & butterfly: help for amputation below knee fins


Anthony has a below knee amputation and finds that shinfinTM fins really help his freestyle and butterfly swimming techniques. So he wears one fin on his right lower leg and adjusts the other fin to fit the 8 inch (20 cm) stump of his left below knee amputation.

Anthony’s review from Hong Kong

“The shinfinTM fins work perfectly on me. They help a lot in freestyle and especially butterfly. For freestyle, they help to keep both legs in the correct kick actions. For butterfly, they help me to ‘feel’ the kick perfectly so that I know how to turn my body at the right timing.”

Powerful fluid kicking style: lap swimming fins


Josie looks forward to lap swimming with her shinfinTM fins because they give her a powerful fluid kick from her hips and overall better swimming style. She adjusts the fin position on her leg because that gives her the ideal angle and height for her kick.

Josie’s review from Brisbane, Australia

“I must say that I have noticed a considerable improvement in my kicking style. My kicking is a lot more fluid and powerful. All in all, I am very happy with my purchase and follow up customer care. I actually look forward to swimming laps now I have shinfinTM fins, which is a huge turn around for me :)”
