Faster paddling & wave catching: bodyboarding fins


Liz’s shinfinTM fins give her faster, easier paddling on her bodyboard and extra speed for catching waves. She paddles out lying horizontal on her bodyboard, doing freestyle arms and kicking at the same time. Sharing the power like this, she finds it faster and much less tiring on her arms and legs. The same faster paddling and wave catching benefits also apply to kneeboarding and surfing.

Liz’s review from Guernsey, Channel Islands

“I first want to say how great they are. I have been using them bodyboarding and they are a fantastic step forward from old style fins. They seem to really add extra speed to bodyboarding. They’re especially great for getting some extra momentum going on waves that have almost been missed. Also make paddling out much easier which helps to catch those big waves. I have been paddling out lying horizontal on the board and the fins really add some power. So it’s much less tiring on the legs and arms. Thanks for a great product 🙂.”

Proper stroke & breathing & position: triathlon training fins


Triathlon training with shinfinTM fins streamlines Charles’ body position, balances his breathing, lengthens his stroke and properly uses the larger muscles in his glutes. This all happens because shinfinTM fins lift his body more horizontal, train more powerful kicking from his hips and give him correct freestyle timing. Most importantly, this transfers to give him a faster, smoother and more efficient freestyle technique.

Charles’ review from Queens, USA

“In a nutshell, I luv em! My shinfinTM fins recruit the larger muscle groups in my glutes. So I am now using less energy for the same amount of distance. They assist me in developing a feel for proper body position in the water. I was able to stretch out and really get a feel of my stroke. So I could definitely feel a better balance as far as my breathing goes. Which in turn encourages me to lengthen my stroke. WAY COOL! I am definitely improving. I was able to keep proper form for a longer period of time. Thanks for such an innovative product.”

Fast sprint & comfortable, light: kneeboarding fins


Comfortable and light, Graham’s shinfinTM fins give him a fast sprint speed on his kneeboard to catch waves. They don’t give him foot cramps like regular foot fins and they are comfortable when kneeling on his kneeboard. Furthermore, they leave his feet free to walk and jump off rocks, for easier water entry.

Graham’s review from Maroochydore, Australia

“The fins are definitely a breakthrough. Good sprint speed for catching the waves (kneeboard). Comfortable in kneeling position. Very comfortable and no foot cramp. Easy to walk and jump off rocks for water entry.”

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.”

Rough seas & current: snorkeling fins


Snorkeling with shinfinTM fins powered Joanne and her sister safely through rough seas and currents. So the fins meant they could keep up with the stronger swimmers in their group. Furthermore, her sister did not get sore feet because shinfinTM fins don’t enclose your feet like regular flippers.

Joanne’s review from Curtin, Australia

“shinfinTM fins were excellent. Despite not being strong swimmers, we could keep up with rest of the strapping young men in rough seas and current. So they were very good and I am very happy with them.”

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!”

Swim technique fins for all ages


Ralph uses shinfinTM fins to improve the swimming technique of his grandchildren of all ages, for freestyle, backstroke and butterfly. The fins encourage them to activate their stronger muscles by kicking from their hips with straighter knees, and build up their stamina and muscle memory.

Ralph’s review from Delran, USA

“I have found that shinfinTM fins are a positive alternative to promoting a more anatomical utilization of the muscles for freestyle, backstroke and butterfly. Just swim freestyle across the pool and feel the fins aid in your leg motions. The fins encourage the muscles of the upper leg, gluteus, lower back and abs to rhythmically move the legs. Presto! That was fun, easy and fast. Your legs do get tired as they react to the exercise and build muscle but it’s more advantageous to practice something technically more correct than perfecting self-defeating inappropriate muscle memory.”

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.

“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 :)”
