Our friends over at Finis sent us a training product to stay in shape for surfing during the cold winter months. They call it the Wave Monofin and I put it through some rigorus testing at the local pool. The fin has been designed for you to use both legs to kick like a dolphin or a whale. The fin has two fixed foot pockets and it straps on to your feet easy without creating any discomfort. Note: Put it on in the water, I had to lean this the hard way!!!
My first few laps were a bit challenging as I tried to figure out the best way to move my body. However, after a few more attempts I got it down and couldn’t believe how much propulsion I was getting! After about an hour I had to call it quits just from pure exhaustion, it’s a heck of a workout!
The next day is when I really felt the soreness in surf muscles, mostly in my core and lower legs. If you’re a surfer, swimmer, or watersports enthusiast I would highly suggest checking out Finis line of mono and training fins. They definitely will keep you in shape for the next swell and you’ll have a blast doing it! Check them out at http://www.finisinc.com/ and as always, be sure to tell a friend.
