Can you confirm the length of this fin? In an earlier question, it was stated that it is "typically between 18 and 20 inches". Im looking for a good travel fin for snorkeling thats medium length, fits my foot (12D) and has a wide enough cuff to accommodate a medium thick boot. Would this be a good fin to consider or can you recommend another? Thanks.
Is there enough strap adjustment that If I got a pair of these in the 9-10 mens would my wife be able to wear them, womens size 6-7? This is for an upcoming vacation and she might try it from our hotel, so it would be only for short durations.
Hello, This is my daughter first time scuba diving. Her shoes size are 8.5-9 women. She is still growing. What would you recommend boot and fin size please? Thanks
My son will be taking scuba diving winter quarter at UCSB and we are looking for a beginners dive mask, fins and boots. How will do these do for a beginnner, especially if he decides he doesnt like it or more likely wants to dive on a more regular basis
I want to get a new pair of flippers. I dont know what brand to get, but I have a tight price range. What should I get. Also if Im wearing boots what side should i get. I wear a American mens 8 and a half.
I wear a size 111/2 shoes. I see that several folks think these fins run large. I typically use fins barefoot for warm water snorkeling and shallow diving. What size of this fin would you recommend for me? Gs
Hello George, if you do not wear some type of boots with these fins that would not fit. These are adjustable strap fins and are designed to be worn with boots. If you are looking for a fin to wear with bare feet or a thin sock I would suggest these: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-21/113074/Ocean-Quest-Caribbean-Full-Foot-Fins.html and in these you would be the 11-13 size.
The Ocean Quest Pacific Adjustable Strap Dive Fins are designed with a Channel Thrust Technology system utilizing a combination of hydro-plastic and rubber for optimal water channeling. This allows the diver to have a relatively soft and easy to kick pair of fins when they are kicking in a relaxed manor or simply trying to hold steady in calmer water. The more effort the diver exerts in their kick causes the rubberized portion of the fin to flex allowing the hydro-plastic portion to curve around it forming a water directing channel giving the diver increased efficiency. This forces the water down the blade, propelling the diver, rather than allowing the water to be wasted by spilling over the sides. Maintaining this optimal thrust throughout every phase of the finning stroke minimizes fatigue while maintaining consistent performance. The ergonomically bent blade helps to ensure maximum performance by making sure the blade of the fin is always parallel to the diver while swimming. This minimizes wasted effort and keeps the blade of the fin in the proper position for the diver throughout the down stroke as well as the upstroke of the kick. Excellent blade snap offers additional performance on the normally weaker up-stroke of the diver’s kick. Quick release buckles allow for easy removal of the fin. The Ocean Quest Pacific Adjustable Strap Dive Fins are available in Blue with Black accents in sizes 7 through 13.
