I am looking for a piere of free dive fins to help me to get to the bottom sooner while spearing rock fish in northern California. My normal shoe size is between 9 or 9.5. my questions are: 1. What size the above fin I should wear AFTER I have a piere of 7 mm Polyolefin Socks? 2. Do you sell any straps? If so, can you recommendate some? Thanks, Mike
I have finally trashed my old ScubaPro fins in the Bahamas. Rest their soul. I now need to find some good bootie fins that do not break the bank. I am 59 and just dive to about 15 feet or so to get crawfish and spear reef fish. What do you suggest considering I used my last set of fins for 38 years...
Hello Steve, the fins you have questions on are a full foot fin not designed to wear with boots. If you are looking for a good fin that will not break the bank then take a look at the Oceanic Vortex V-12 Dive Fins web link: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-20/014610/Oceanic-Vortex-V-12-Dive-Fins.html.
I just received my fins by Mares that I bought off your site Iam a 10 in shoes and got the 10-11 fin size they have some room in the heel was just wondering if this is normal ?
Hello, this is simi normal. It sounds like your a little between sizes. Check out some neoprene socks this will tighten up the fin. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-112/001129/XS-Scuba-2mm-Low-Top-Titanium-Dive-Socks.html
I just asked about the fin being a little roomy in the heel when I stand with the fin on its easy for my foot to come out . Will going down a size work or will that be to small? I have the 10- 11 thinking about going down one size also would I be able to go to your place in Irvine since I live in Long beach to replace them ?
Yes, of course! Our retail hours are Monday through Saturday, 10am to 6p. We look forward to seeing you.
I want to buy the fins for snorkeling but dont know which kind to choose. What are the difference between full foot fins & long blade fins & adjustable strap fins. Im not skillful to snorkeling and can only do it on the surface of water. Which kind of fins are the best choice to me? By the way, I normally wear 7.5 size of shoes. Should I choose the size of 6.5-7.5 or 8-9? Can you give me suggestion for what kind of clothing to buy for snorkeling? Sometimes the water is cold. Thanks very much.
Hello Maggie, if all you are doing is snorkeling you would only need these fins: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-21/013910/IST-Sea-Diver-Snorkel-Fins.html.
