Better crawl stroke: swim learning fins


Evelyn’s shinfinTM fins help her learn to swim, especially with a better front crawl stroke. In particular, wearing them enables her to focus her attention on improving her stroke and breathing. Furthermore, after she uses her fins for the first half of her workout, she notices her stroke improvements transfer to her no-fins crawl stroke too. Most importantly, she finds them comfortable with no foot cramps, unlike regular foot fins.

Evelyn’s review from Santa Cruz, USA

“I am a very satisfied customer. I just learned to swim the crawl stroke with my face in the water. The fins have helped me a lot. Using them, I have been able to pay more attention to and improve my stroke. The best part – NO FOOT CRAMPS! Buying them was a spot-on decision, and I am going great with them.”

Better leg workout: swim training fins


Barry gets a better, whole leg workout when swim training with his shinfinTM fins fins. The fins adjust to fit him fine even though he is 6 foot 5 inches tall with big feet. Furthermore, they don’t hurt his ankles like regular fins. He says he is flying through the water with his shinfinTM fins fins.

Barry’s review from Vienna, USA

shinfinTM fins are clearly a superior product. I absolutely love my fins and am really glad that I made the purchase. Thanks for making such a great product and having wonderful customer service. I really appreciate it. What I like best about them is that they encourage you to use your whole leg as opposed to just your ankle to kick. I am delighted by the fact that these don’t hurt my ankles anymore.”

Weak arms & mobility: disability fins


Amanda has a mobility disability and, as her arms can also be quite weak, she fits her shinfinTM fins using the alternative strapping for weaker fingers. They adjust to fit her larger legs and allow her to share her fins. By encouraging kicking from the hips, they have greatly improved her kick and swimming comfort. Furthermore, her brother could feel them improving his swim style after only one use.

Amanda’s review from Canberra, Australia

“I have noticed a great improvement in my kick and have really enjoyed the way they work the legs and buttocks. I have a mobility disability and find that the fins make my swim a lot more comfortable. One great thing is being able to share them – much easier than with conventional flippers! But, I am a bit reluctant ’cause I love them so much.”

Kick with whole leg: snorkeling fins


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.”

Improve fin-free swim technique


By swimming with shinfinTM 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!”

“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 :)”

Improve your kick: swim training fins


Michael uses shinfinTM fins during his swim training sessions to improve his kick. He notices the improvements in his natural (no-fins) kick straight away, when he removes the fins and keeps swimming.
