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 🙂.”

Horizontal position & consistent rhythm: freestyle kick fins


Paul’s swim training with shinfinTM fins gives him a horizontal body position and a consistent freestyle kick rhythm. So he gets more effective use of his legs, including for catching waves on shorter surfboards.

Paul’s review from Brisbane, Australia

“With the fins I’m able to maintain a horizontal position much easier and maintain a consistent rhythm with my kick. Basically I find them great.”

Less arm paddling: kneeboarding & surfing fins


Mike uses shinfinTM fins to paddle less with his arms when kneeboarding and stand-up surfing. This is especially important for Mike’s rotator cuff shoulder problem and for other arm and shoulder injuries. Also, they don’t aggravate a bunion on Mike’s toe, unlike regular fins.

Mike’s review from Bend, Oregon, USA

“Cheers, they work good.”
