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.”

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.”

Improve your kick swim training fins


Michael uses shinfin 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.

Michael’s review from Kalgoorlie, Australia

“They arrived promptly and have improved my kick. I had a reasonable style but it has continued to improve.”
