By Mike from Bend, Oregon, USA – I am a kneeboarder and also stand up surfer. I wear a full suit. I switched to kneeboarding due to a rotator cuff problem. I need to paddle less with arms, and now regular swim fins aggravate a “bunionette” on my little toe joint. Hoping another method of swimming will result in less aggravation. They are good in the pool, I like the way that they work for laps and training for the day I go back to surf.
