Your ideal river board fins?
Have you ever dreamed of river board fins that lift your knees higher, protect your shins and leave your feet free to fend off obstacles? Have you ever wished for comfortable fins that don’t strain your feet, ankles, Achilles tendons and calf muscles, so you can shoot more rapids with less fatigue? Do you long for river board fins that leave your feet free to kick naturally and walk easier over rocks than foot flippers? Can you imagine steering your river board through the white water using a more efficient, streamlined kick with power from the strong muscles in your thighs, buttocks, stomach and torso?
River boarders around the world are realising the benefits of shinfin
Feet free to fend off obstacles
They strap just above your ankles, not to your feet at all. So your feet are completely free to fend off obstacles. You can wear shinfin
River board fins that lift your knees higher above obstacles
They lie along your shins and the top of your feet. So the water flowing across the fins lifts your shins and knees higher. This keeps your legs more horizontal and streamlined, so they are less likely to hit underwater obstacles.
Tough protection for shins & feet
Comfortable river board fins, so you can ride more rapids
They don’t hurt your toes, feet, ankles or Achilles tendons. They don’t give you dangerous foot cramps or calf cramps. They don’t blister and cut your feet. They don’t fill with grit, pebbles or sand. These river board fins are more comfortable than your old foot flippers so you can river board longer in the rapids and have more fun.
Streamlined kick, strong muscles
These river board fins give you good thrust with a streamlined freestyle kick like good swimmers use. They guide you into a powerful kick from your hips, without bending your knees too much. That’s why your knees and thighs are higher in the water where they are less likely to be banged on underwater obstacles. Power comes from your strong thigh, buttock, stomach and torso muscles. If this kick is new to you, it may take a while to build your strength in your upper legs and torso. Most river boarders get the feel of this streamlined kick very quickly. Sometimes it helps to practice this streamlined kick first without your board, swimming normal freestyle with shinfin
Powered control in rapids
They lift your legs more horizontal, keeping you more streamlined behind your river board to reduce drag. The fin power surface is closer to your board for an exciting ride. Better streamlining gives you a faster ride with positive control in the rapids. These river board fins are not angled down like foot flippers, so they don’t cause unwanted foot lift or drag like foot flippers. You can keep kicking them for faster steering through the rapids.

Tough, light fins that don’t break
They are made from tough polyurethane which is extremely abrasion resistant to cuts from rocks and branches. They don’t tear or break like foot flippers. They are only about half the weight of many foot flippers and pack flat so they are much easier to carry. These tough, light river board fins will last you for years. We have had no failures returned to us. The secure rubber straps are also tough but they will gradually wear with use and exposure to the UV in sunlight. Replacement straps are available from this website if you need them.
