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.”

Open water swimming with shoes & fins


Milo uses shinfin fins for lap swimming and for open water swimming with his amphibious water shoes. He values that he can walk and run with the fins. They are strong and lightweight, so he can also wear them for water safety riding his jet ski. As a past competitive swimmer, he appreciates that shinfin fins don’t make him alter his natural kick (unlike regular fins).

Milo’s review from Seattle, USA

“They are impressive Marc. I was a competitive swimmer years ago, and it’s great to have a fin that doesn’t make me alter my kick. Amphibious shoes and the shinfin fins are a great combo. Surprisingly, the drag from leaving the shoes on is not that much. I think your shinfin fins are creating a dead area that shields the shoes from the water flow somewhat.”

Broken leg recovery hydrotherapy fins


Using shinfin fins for various hydrotherapy strengthening exercises helps Vicki’s recovery from her broken leg. Despite her swollen ankle, the fins still fit her. Furthermore, they don’t make her ankles ache like normal foot flippers. Without a bulky foot pocket, they are lighter and easier to pack into her bag. As they leave her feet free, she found them quite good to walk in too.

Vicki’s review from Sandy Bay, Australia

“Have enjoyed swimming with the fins. After one recent swim, I tried a normal pair of flippers on and found them quite hard work on my ankle that is still aching at the end of the day! No such problems with shinfin fins. They also happen to fit in the swimming bag a bit easier too!”

Rough seas & current snorkeling fins


Snorkeling with shinfin 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 shinfin fins don’t enclose your feet like regular flippers.

Joanne’s review from Curtin, Australia

“shinfin 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.”

Kick with whole leg snorkeling fins


Steve notices that shinfin 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 shinfin 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.”

Better balance safer water therapy fins


Following a heart attack and some strokes, Lyn’s father (81) balances better and feels safer using shinfin fins for his water therapy. They make it easier and safer for him to walk and stand in the water because they leave his feet free. He finds the smooth kick from his entire leg much easier because they lift his body more horizontal and streamlined.

Lyn’s review from Sydney, Australia

Congratulations on an excellent product and great sales and service. The shinfin fins have been fantastic, as they are easy to move in while entering the water and allow him to maintain balance easier while standing in the water. The distribution of the energy through the entire leg, rather than just the ankle, also means it is much easier and takes less energy, to kick. The confidence factor, in that he feels safer, is also important.”
