During last 12 years I’ve asked about 1500 divers what was the reason they choose specific type of fins. I watched them in water during workshops, trying to achieve the best swimming technique they could. The fins where not always what we call support.
Most divers seem to choose their fins due to the shoe size and shape. The more they fit to the shoe size – the better.
Other features are not exactly a key point of interest. Is that really enough?
I watched the swimming techniques workshops movies that I’ve made over last 10 years. I’ve compared if and how the precision of the technique depends on the kind of fins or boots used by a diver.
It is only the beginning but I have already come to same interesting conclusions…
