websites full of information on fins and other scuba equipment.
The type of fins you pick must match the type of diving you do.
If you dive in cold water, you'll be wearing a lot more gear
than if you only dive in the Caribbean. The added equipment
creates drag, which requires a larger, stiffer fin.
There are many styles of fins on the market including full foot
fins and fins with heel straps Full foot fins are worn like
shoes. These are used in warm water when no wet of dry suit boot
is needed. With heel strap fins, only the front two-thirds of
your foot goes into the fin, and a heel strap holds your foot in
place. Heel strap fins require booties to be worn to obtain a
proper fit. Heel strap fins are used by cold water divers. Some
fins have a vents on the blade. These are designed to allow
water to pass through the vent when kicking for added stability.
The OMS ® Thrust ™ fin is specifically engineered to fit dry
suit boots and for 2005 has been re-engineered with a new distortion
resistant Monoprene blade with higher durometer for significantly
increased propulsion. OMS® Spring heel straps come in sizes
S, M, L, and XL to insure proper fit and help eliminate excessive coil
expansion and entanglements! The springs expand and contract to
automatically adjust and compensate for expansion and compression of the
divers dry suit boot. The 4.5” Achilles rubber pad provides
unprecedented comfort in the heel area and aids in donning and doffing
of the fin
Long finning action without
exertion. Ideal for warm-water and tropical diving, wet suits or dry
Twin Jet Fins, Adjustable
Like the tailfin of a Humpback whale, SCUBAPRO's Twin Jet Fin uses a
split hydrofoil shape to deliver more forward motion with less effort. A
whole lot more kicking power with a whole lot less effort and drag:
check out a Humpback, its "twin jet" tail can lift a mega-ton! As a
result, our Twin Jet Fin is the fastest fin ever tested.
Not all split fins are equal. Apollo
was the first to visualize and introduce the split fin technology to
the diving public. There are now more than a dozen alternative split
fins on the market. Look closely before you decide. While some are
produced with a plastic rubber compound, the Apollo Bio-Fin series
is the only split fin produced with 100% rubber
The Teleoz Fins are a unique design.
They are incredibly light weight, very comfortable to wear, have
You can't find a better fin for travel– they'll fit in a small bag.
Using these fins and an Escape or Zena BC, we can get a full
featured diving system for warm water travel into a package the size
of a large briefcase that weighs less than 15 lbs
