Selecting The Right Pair Of Swim Fins

When choosing a pair of body surfing fins, POD Ware highly recommends that “Comfort” and “Fit” be the number one most important factor.
Second should be “Performance”, and the third is “Price”, as we say… If you have Comfort and Performance is worth the price you pay.

Let's address these two bodysurfing fins features.

Having the correct fit swim fins provides comfort for those long session bodysurfing, not only will it provide peace of mind having comfort and a nice snug fit, this ensure your feet will thrust in parallel with your swim fins performing the best results from a quality rubber pair of body surfing swim fins.

Comfort

The fin should fit snugly without squeezing your foot or toes. If it to tight, you'll get cramps.

The opening of the foot pocket and fin strap should be nice and snug, and if either is loose, they are more than likely with slip off in the surf.

However, it is less than a few millimetres around the foot pocket opening you can wear 3mm neoprene socks, it is snug around the foot pocket, but the fin strap is still loose you can where our neoprene heal protects and fin savers the best snug fit and fins safety.

All of the POD fins are comfortable and top of the line quality rubber. Make sure you pick the size that corresponds with our sizing foot chart info given.

We take returns for exchange minus shipping costs as long as you haven't used them in the surf and you return them within 30 days after you receive them.

Performance

A fin should provide right thrust. We offer "symmetric" a blade that shaped the same on both sides which provided excellent balance and less load on your feet, ankles and knees.

Asymmetric fins have a blade that is diagonal, even so, the PF3 POD fins asymmetric blade edge has been designed with the blade curvature more towards the centre to feel more like the asymmetric blade, with the extra advantage of extra trust and wave holding ability

Shorter blades provide a quicker start, but it means you have to give more kicks to get the same distance as a longer fin. However, longer blade fins can also add more load to your feet, ankles and knees.
