Why You Need Scuba Diving Fins
Fins make your diving trips much more enjoyable. They enable you to move through the water more effectively and help to conserve your energy. Scuba diving is a very physical activity so any piece of kit that can make things easier for you is well worthwhile.
Open or Full Foot Fins
There are two main types of fin designs available - open and full foot. Basically full foot fins are designed to be worn without diving boots. They will fit over your whole foot and are ideal for warm water diving. Open heel fins are meant to fit over diving boots and so are necessary if you want to keep your feet warm in colder water conditions.
If you are going on recreational dives then you will it is unlikely you will be spending more than a few hours in the water or travelling long distances. This means you can buy a good mid-range fin that will last well and provide you with the kick power you need. If you are taking part in commercial diving you may be spending a lot longer on each dive and travel much further. In this case you should consider spending a bit more and opt for a professional grade fin that can offer enhanced performance and durability.
Choosing the Right Dive Fin
There are lots of dive fins on the market. They are available in different lengths and grades of flexibility. If you have a strong kick then a stiffer blade can make the most of your style to push you through the water effectively. However stiffer blades push aside more water so if you have a weaker kick you may find them tiring to use. In this case you should choose a more flexible option which should be easier for you to kick through the water.
Choosing dive fins can be tricky as not all fin types will suit your diving style and needs. Here are just a couple of tips to help you choose the right dive fin:
-Beginners – a standard paddle fin is best if you are just starting out in scuba diving. These are easy to use and affordable. Once you get more experience in the water you may want to try some of the more exotic options such as split fin designs.
-Size – above all your fin needs to feel comfortable. This is why it is important to get the right size. Most fins are available in foot sizes. Make sure you know your own foot size and check this against the manufacturers sizing guidelines. It is a good idea to buy some fin straps as well (even with full foot products) as this can provide an additional level of adjustment to make sure your fins fit securely.
