Teach, bodyboard, body surf & snorkel: multi-use fins


Anne finds her shinfinTM fins great for many uses: from teaching squad swimmers and beginners, through to surf swimming, bodyboarding, body surfing and snorkeling. She likes the extra propulsion with the natural kick technique, streamlined body and no leg cramps. What’s more, sharing the fins is easy, as one size fits most. She also likes that they fit securely, so don’t fall off in surf wipe outs.

Anne’s review from Kilmore, Australia

First, swim teaching. “The shinfinTM fins are great. They enable swimmers to practice the correct kicking technique, and to maintain it after they take the fins off. Very useful in teaching dolphin kick and butterfly for this reason. One size fits most, so no more scrambling around for the right sized fins, which saves me a great deal of time poolside. Great for squad level swimmers. Especially useful for adult students who are learning to swim from scratch. Natural kicking action with extra propulsion to help maintain streamlined body position and buoyancy. Assist with overall water confidence. Happy to endorse a product this good.”

Then, in the surf. “My shinfinTM fins were fantastic for surf swimming, bodyboarding and body surfing. Compared to “normal” fins I had less dramas getting into the surf. Great to swim & paddle in. Didn’t come off even when I wiped out. Also found them great when snorkeling. No leg cramps.”

Don’t hurt calves. Easy learn to swim fins


From never being able to swim a lap, shinfinTM fins have helped Dass learn to swim many laps, in comfort and without hurting her calves like foot fins. This is because they teach and guide her into a good swimming style. They also give her the confidence to swim out of her depth by improving water safety.

Dass’ review from Middletown, USA

“The fins are great! I just started taking swimming lessons. I have never been able to do a lap in the pool. They have helped me learn to swim and also given me the confidence to stay in the water even when I cannot touch the bottom. I used to use normal fins and they always hurt my calves. But with shinfinTM fins, my legs move in the correct form for swimming and they just make everything easy. Now I swim laps for about 30 minutes non stop! Thanks Marc, for this great invention!”

Better crawl stroke swim learning fins


Evelyn’s shinfinTM fins help her learn to swim with a better front crawl stroke. Wearing them enables her to focus her attention on improving her stroke and breathing. Furthermore, after she uses her fins for the first half of her workout, she notices her stroke improvements transfer to her no-fins crawl stroke too. Most importantly, she finds them comfortable with no foot cramps, unlike regular foot fins.

Evelyn’s review from Santa Cruz, USA

“I am a very satisfied customer. I just learned to swim the crawl stroke with my face in the water. The fins have helped me a lot. Using them, I have been able to pay more attention to and improve my stroke. The best part – NO FOOT CRAMPS! Buying them was a spot-on decision, and I am going great with them.”

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.”

No foot & toe cramps & a better workout fins


With shinfin fins, Sue gets a much better fitness workout whilst avoiding the foot cramps and toe cramps she used to get with regular flippers. What’s more, they help her learn to use her upper legs more and to relax her feet.

Sue’s review from Old Erowal Bay, Australia

“I love my shinfin fins. Compared to flippers they give me a much better workout. I definitely won’t be going back to flippers.”
