Learn stronger normal swimming without fins too


By simply doing laps with her shinfin fins, Margo also learns much stronger normal swimming without fins. This is because they help her learn to swim in the correct kicking position with straighter legs. So they give her more hip power and efficiency. As a result, her swimming feels very easy. She can swim twice as far without getting tired, thus boosting her swimming confidence. So her swim learning with shinfin fins transfers to greatly improve her swimming without fins too. Furthermore, she finds the fin comfort wonderful and no longer gets cramping in her feet and toes when she swims without fins.

Margo’s review from Weetangera, Australia

“Just to let you know that I took your suggestion of trying to swim without the fins, after having done a number of laps with them. Couldn’t believe how much stronger my ‘normal’ swimming was! I kept my legs straight when kicking, and moved with more power and efficiency through the water (and so far, no cramps!). I am sure this is due to my body having been ‘trained’ into the correct position when using the fins.”

Weak arms & mobility disability fins


Amanda has a mobility disability and, as her arms can also be quite weak, she fits her shinfin 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.”

Great control & no foot pain snorkeling fins


Bill gets great control and maneuverability, without any foot pain, when he snorkels and swims with shinfin fins. They leave his feet free and don’t bend or hurt his feet. In contrast, normal flippers aggravate his feet so they only allow him to swim for short periods.

Bill’s review from Rockingham, Australia

“The shinfin fins were perfect. Everything I had hoped they would be. Great control and maneuverability. Best of all no pain in the foot. So I was in the water till I turned blue. Many thanks for a great invention.”
