Your ideal swim technique fins?
Are you a good to elite swimmer looking for swim technique fins to improve your power and speed? Are you looking for improvements in your kick, streamlining and arm stroke efficiency? shinfin
To avoid damaging an already good swimming technique, your swim technique fins must “feel right” when you swim with them. All your body movements (arms too) should be similar with and without your fins. You should use the same muscles, in the same muscle sequence as your natural stroke. Your good swimming techniques should still be there as soon as you take off your fins. This tells you that your swimming fins are working with your natural swimming technique. You should not have to swim laps to recover your natural swimming stroke like you do after taking off foot flippers.
To improve your swimming, your swim technique fins must do even more. They must match and enhance the swimming techniques of good/elite swimmers. They must help to optimise your horizontal, efficient body position and natural streamlined kick from your hips. They must help to improve your kick efficiency using power from your thighs, buttocks, stomach and torso – the correct muscles that good/elite swimmers use. They should continue to “feel right” when you swim slower (perhaps to work on your upper body technique), or swim faster (perhaps with a higher beat kick). Whatever your speed, your swim technique fins should guide your strokes to become smoother, more streamlined and more efficient. You should feel improvements as soon as you take your fins off and immediately swim without them. Then you know your fins are enhancing your natural swimming technique.

Swimming technique fins, more from the inventor/designer
I have designed shinfin
Good and elite swimmers and swim coaches quickly recognise the natural, streamlined kick of shinfin
Most swimmers and coaches know that foot flippers corrupt your kick and change your whole swimming technique too. Foot flippers cannot work with proper swimming techniques (even if you cut them short across the toes) basically because they are connected to your feet. They stiffen and cramp your feet and ankles, and disrupt water flow. Foot flippers change your body position and your ankle, knee and hip movements, often to a “bicycle-kick” with knees bent too low. You can’t kick at your normal rate and you use different muscles. You know your swim technique is wrong because your body remembers the corrupt foot flipper kick even after you take them off. That’s why it takes a few laps of the pool without foot flippers, before your swimming technique feels natural again. Some coaches cut foot flippers short to try to improve them, but they are still connected to your feet so the problems remain. Other coaches refuse to use foot flippers at all for swimming training.
