March 5, 2019   Families - We have an opportunity to order these soft rubber swim fins at a greatly reduced price. The fin is ideal for many swimmers because it is a very soft rubber and bends considerably more easily than the Arena,  TYR or Hydro models. For some swimmers (myself included) they can kick better with these and engage the hip muscles to develop more leg strength. Note: some swimmers do prefer and excel with a stiffer fin (Arena, TYR or Hydro).   Should you wish to get...

This is a great meet for swimmers looking to gain experience in competing on the mainland in a championship setting....
