Shinfin Pty Ltd was established in 2002, to develop shinfinTM fins and bring them to the world. Thank you very much for your interest.
Developing revolutionary new fins that attach to the legs is a long and exciting road. Of course it requires science, design engineering and a huge amount of prototyping and testing. But most essential is a good dose of humility. Because, in the end, it all comes down to some fundamental questions. Do the fins feel natural? Do people like using them?
So my heartfelt thanks go out to the thousands of people who have tried shinfinTM fins (prototypes and production) and who have been kind enough to give me their honest feedback.
For more about my design passion please see natural fin design.

Australian government support
The AusIndustryTM R&D Start Program (Commonwealth Government of Australia) awarded us two grants for shinfinTM fins research and development. So I am very grateful for this support.
The Australian Technology Showcase (New South Wales Government, Australia) selected us for membership. This helped to develop export markets for shinfinTM fins. So I appreciate their assistance too.
University of Edinburgh research
The University of Edinburgh (Scotland) helped our research with 3D video analysis of swimmers wearing shinfinTM fins. They did this research at their specially constructed swimming pool at their Centre for Aquatic Research and Education (CARE), at the Department of Physical Education Sports and Leisure Studies (PESLS). So many thanks for this research.
