Which Fins Are Best For Me?

WHICH FINS ARE BEST FOR ME?

For some years recreational and competitive swimmers were using long fins as training aids and because of this the centre of effort is forward of the foot, thus causing early fatigue or cramping and encouraging a "pedalling" kicking motion, different than that used in a flutter kick.

The concept of the shorter bladed fin, like DMC Fins, was conceived to bring the centre of effort back to the foot, and increase leg strength and "muscle memory" while maintaining an elevated heart rate with a kicking motion specific to the flutter kick. (There are many fin brands on the market today that are simply a standard dive fin style that has been cut off, leaving a stiff, inflexible blade).

At DMC Fins, there are many options for swim training and leisure swimming fins. Read on to get introduced to each fin and its benefits to you.

You can also watch informative informational videos on every style of DMC fin, presented by Don McCredie, founder and developer of DMC Fins, talking about each style and their unique benefits.
