Looking for a lighter fin than my Scubapro twin jets for a Cayman trip coming up. Do these Vortex V-6s have the power to push a diver and all his gear?
Would these be suitable for diving in Monterrey California where the water is around 50degrees F? Thank you
Hello Ben, Thank you for your inquiry! Only if you are wearing 5 or 7mm dive boots. The water temperature is approximately 50 degrees F. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-13/003450/Deep-See-Atlantic-Medium-Sole-Zipper-Dive-Boots.html We would recommend Oceanic Vortex V-8 Adjustable Strap Dive Fins with a 7mm dive boot. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-20/014489/Oceanic-Vortex-V-8-Adjustable-Strap-Dive-Fins.html If you would like to place an order, please contact one of our certified Dive Instructors at SCUBA.com by calling 800-247-2822 <> 949-221-9300 or e-mail us at: email@example.com

I wear a size 10.5 or 11 in a tennis shoe and I noticed the only mens size choice for these fins is 9-10 or 11-12. Which size should I order?
Hello Bruce, Thank you for your inquiry! I would not recommend V-6 with your shoe size. Try the TUSA FF-19 X-Pert Evolution Full Foot Dive Fins Men's 10-11. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-21/013850/TUSA-FF-19-X-Pert-Evolution-Full-Foot-Dive-Fins.html If you would like to place an order, please contact one of our certified Dive Instructors at SCUBA.com by calling 800-247-2822 <> 949-221-9300 or e-mail us at: email@example.com
Im training to take the PAST test for the USAF and Im looking for some fins to do some lap swimming in a pool. How do I size them? What are the best ones to buy for rec swimming?
Split fins will offer you the best performance and easiest kick while still mimicking a traditional flutter kick used by swimmers. The only problem with that is if you are going to be doing your swim without fins as the test requires you won't be getting any benefit in terms of fitness training from the split fin. The ease of propulsion when using a pair of split fins will totally negate any fitness training you may receive by swimming. We do offer a few more traditional swim training fins that would be a great deal more beneficial to you. You can find them at: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-599/Swimming-Swim-Goggles--Fins-and-Snorkels.html
I found these fins for $51.96 elsewhere. Would I be able to get a price match? The link is below. http://www.onlinescuba.com/Oceanic-Scuba-Diving-Vortex-V-6-Full-Foot-Fins-Black-Large-Clearance-Item-P14384.aspx Thank you

Will this fin fit people with wide feet? If not, what fin would you recommend for people with wide feet?
I am a womans size 7 1/2 narrow. What size should I order in Oceanic Vortex V-6? Also, I have a bony foot. Will the "full foot" be comfortable for me? One more question - what is the length dimension of this fin?
Hello Leslie, since you have a narrow foot. The fin I would suggest for you is the TUSA FF-19 X-Pert Evolution Full Foot Dive Fins Black with Silver Accents Mens 5-6/Womens 6-7 (SM)web link: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-21/013850/TUSA-FF-19-X-Pert-Evolution-Full-Foot-Dive-Fins.html.
do you do the whole package fins mask and snorke
Hello, Tara if you go to: http://www.scuba.com/shop/packages.asp_type_Snorkel_Package_Snorkel. It will be the third package down on the list.
My son wears a size 6 (kids-he is 12 years old) shoe. What size fin should I purchase for him
IST Sea Diver Snorkel Fins are a good choice for kids. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-21/013910/IST-Sea-Diver-Snorkel-Fins.html
Hello, I wear size 12 running shoes and size 11.5 dress shoes. Im interested in fins I can use for occasional snorkeling and recreational open water diving. Would you recommend these fins or something with an adjustable strap? Also, should I buy fin socks for these Vortex V-6s? Thank you!!
I have Multiple Sclerosis and my old fins (probably fifteen years old and just standard kind of fins) caused my legs and feet to really cramp up. Can you recommend fins that are easier on the muscles that might reduce/eliminate cramping? (We only go on a snorkeling vacation every few years.) Thanks
I wear booties with my old fins (with straps on the back) because we snorkel in Kona and have to deal with lava rock. Will these fins work with booties? Thanks.
Can you suggest a fin that I can wear with rubber sole booties that will also reduce muscle cramping?
The Akona Caicos Fins will be a good choice. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-20/012214/Akona-Caicos-Dive-Fins.html
VROOOM! The Vortex V6 is for the warm-water diver, snorkeler, or free-diver that wants maximum power generation, response, and acceleration out of every single turn. The V-6 is extremely lightweight, yet delivers greater speed and efficiency than most open heel fins.
Provides more speed and power than larger open-heel paddle fins with significantly less effort
Small size and light weight is ideal for travel
Evaprene composite material for increased performance and long life
Comfortable rubber foot pocket in a wide range of sizes
I’ve been a split fin user literally since the day they hit the stores. As a huge fan of Nature’s Wing’s innovation I can’t think of any reason to not use a pair, and over the years have disproven every single argument against split fins that has come down the pike. The only thing I really haven’t enjoyed about my trusty fins has been their weight out of the water. Now-a-days with the airlines getting their shorts all in a wad over weight restrictions and such, saving a few pounds in our luggage is more important than ever.
That’s where the V-6 Full Foot Fins come into play. Light weight and smaller than my open heel fins, they pack very easily. In fact, I’ve put them in my carry-on a few times on trips that I was not checking a bag. But that is the only place these fins seem to come up “short” in comparison. The foot pocket fits comfortably with or without a fin sock, and the performance is exactly what you hope to get out of a split fin. They kick easily, helping you to avoid leg cramps, offer you great control in the water and give you the chance to relax and enjoy your dive or snorkeling outing with ease and comfort. Like any good split fin they zoom into action with very little effort on your part when you need them to, allowing you to hurry over to see that exciting fish or animal before it gets away!
Scuba or snorkeling, these light weight fins are the only way to go if you are planning on enjoying a warm water trip!
