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!”

Light & easy to pack snorkeling & swimming fins


Urzsula finds it easier traveling with shinfin fins for snorkeling and swimming trips. This is because they are so light and easy to pack compared to regular foot flippers. Urszula ordered a couple of pairs for herself and her friend. She found them great for snorkeling and swimming once she became used to them. The fins guide you into a natural kick action which may not be familiar to some people at first. Also, once you put them on a few times, you naturally adjust the fin position for the best result.

Urszula’s review from Wembley Downs, Australia

“Yes the fins are great. We took them to Thailand and used them for swimming and snorkeling. They are also light and easy to pack!”

Above knee amputee snorkeling with prosthetic leg fins


Shaun is an above knee amputee who snorkels wearing a pair of shinfin fins, one fin on his prosthetic leg and the other fin on his shin. He is very happy with them, especially because of the easier water entry, water exit and streamlined kicking propulsion technique. Also, he highly values that the fins are light and compact enough to fit into his small carry-on backpack, for ultralight traveling. His story is very useful for above knee amputees and below knee amputees swimming with waterproof prosthetic legs, for snorkeling and other water activities too.

Shaun’s review from Redondo Beach, USA

“The shinfin fins worked great for me and had a ton of benefits. Overall I couldn’t be happier.”
