Divers who prefer to dive without booties can still enjoy the performance benefits of the award-winning Seawing Nova fin with the SEAWING NOVA FULL-FOOT. This fin offers all the power, acceleration, maneuverability and effortless kicking characteristics of the open-heel Seawing Nova, but with the foot support and comfort of a full-foot design.
Made of modern Monprene and spotlighting its proprietary G4 (4th Generation) articulated hinge that enables the entire wing-shaped blade to pivot and generate thrust, the SEAWING NOVA FULL-FOOTproduces a propulsive snap that can rocket you through open water at top speed or propel you along reefs or in and out of tight spots with total control. Able to chew up the competition when kicked in turbo mode, theSEAWING NOVA FULL-FOOT also excels in low-speed maneuvering, including frog kicks and reverse kicks, and offers improved handling when making small directional adjustments. And it’s able to do all this with little to no ankle or leg strain.
The SEAWING NOVA FULL-FOOT’s ergo-fit foot pocket is low profile to prevent chaffing and blistering on the ankle and Achilles tendon, and it features Power Rails under its extended footplate for efficient power transfer, plus an extended toe box for comfort. A re-engineered heel pad, mid-sole pad, and rough surface design provide better grip on slippery boat decks or dive ladders.
ScubaPro – Seawing Nova Gorilla
The successor to the famous SCUBAPRO Gorilla fins of the 1980s, this new version of the award-winning Seawing Nova has been fine-tuned to provide a slight increase in stiffness and snap. They give you more power, more speed and even better frog-kick-ability while at the same time ensuring they still offer the legendary comfort and efficiency of Seawings! The GORILLAs are ideal for those diving in demanding conditions!
The secret to the Gorilla Nova design is the articulated joint that allows the blade to pivot allowing the entire blade to generate thrust. Pivot control technology ensures the most efficient angle of attack is maintained no matter how hard or softly you kick, generating thrust without drag or wasted energy. Gorilla Nova incorporates clean water blade geometry for optimum propulsion. Water is free to flow onto the working section of the blade, resulting in drag reduction and a thrust increase. Variable pivot control ribs insure that the most efficient angle of attack is maintained across all strengths of kick.
Comfort is felt with Gorilla’s ergonomic foot pocket with extended heel plate that insuring ultimate power transmission with less leg strain. Durable Monprene construction makes SeaWing virtually indestructible and wing tips arc upwards, increasing high-speed stability. The Fins have marine quality bungee heel strap with custom adjustment system for total comfort and convenience. Fins are available in four sizes from Small to X-Large and are covered by a limited lifetime warranty.
Cressi – Gara 300 LD Freediving Fins
The structure of the Gara 3000 LD is identical to the greatly-appreciated Gara 3000, but the material of the blade, which is softer, is what makes them stand out.
The LD in the 3000 LD stands for Long Distance, indicating the main use of the product, and these fins have emerged from the need to offer enthusiasts increasingly powerful fins, which are however less demanding than the Gara 3000 fins.
Less muscle effort is required for kicking so divers can use them for longer, making them perfect to use many hours in a row.
The softer blade is also very suitable for use in cold water, which is notorious for its tendency to stiffen materials and make them less flexible.
Cressi – Gara Modular Carbon Blade (Single)
$229.95 – $239.95
Directional camouflage carbon blade to ensure the thrust that only composite fibers can deliver.
An interchangeable blade which is very lightweight and reactive and also well-adapted for advanced freediving and spearfishing.
Each sold seperatly.
Cressi – Gara Modular Carbon Freediving Fins
$519.95 – $529.95
The Gara Modular Carbon fins use the same foot pocket module as the standard modular fins but with a composite carbon fibre blade finished in a directional camouflage green.
The carbon fibre blade provides a stiff but lightweight blade for excellent propulsion for the advanced diver.
The modular design is also perfect for travelling, allowing the fins to be disassembled and packed into shorter travel bags and reassembled at the destination.
The foot pockets use a soft rubber around the foot and arch for comfort and a stiffer compound along the sides and traction pads for efficient power transfer.
The foot pocket also features an expansion zone on the top of the pocket that expands and contracts to allow the fins to be worn barefoot in warmer climates or with socks in cooler waters without the need to have a different size fin.
Cressi – Reaction Open-Heel Fins
Reaction is the most recent of the Cressi scuba diving fins, and takes advantage of the exclusive Cressi patented technology of moulding in three materials, to guarantee unequalled performance.
Reaction takes up many of the innovative features already introduced in Rondine A: the blade that emerges right along the side of the footing, the differentiated thickness of the blade, the frames made from two materials, the sole made completely from a non-slip material, the very comfortable computer-designed housing of the foot and the innovative buckles to prevent accidental unbuckling.
To all these excellent features, Reaction adds a new, longer, more flexible and lighter blade that provides excellent thrust with minimum muscle fatigue and the smallest expenditure of energy.
The result is the perfect fin for modern divers, beginners or professionals; light, easy to use, not very tiring, but fins that can also provide excellent thrust, which makes it possible to safely deal with even the most critical underwater diving situations.
Aqua Lung – Express SS
The heart of the Express ADJ is a highly elastic “armadillo” hinge at the base of the blade. Like the Power Bands of the Slingshot, it absorbs energy during the power stroke and releases at the end of the kick cycle to maximize thrust. These open-heel fins are an excellent choice for cold and temperate water divers who need a powerful, compact blade.
Armadillo membrane at the base of the blade absorbs energy during the down stroke, and releases prior to the upstroke for a power boost on every kick.
Rubber side ribs channel water down the length of the fin, minimizing wasted energy from the spill-over effect.
A Mid-foot Flex Joint is used to attach the blade to the side of the foot pocket. This maximizes energy transfer and reduces strain on the ankles and toes.
ESBS (Ergonomic Strap and Buckle System) uses a press-to-release button that is easily operated, even while wearing thick gloves.
Rubber heel straps are made with anti-aging compounds and have large finger loops at each end and in the middle for easy donning, even when wearing heavy gloves.
Streamlined foot pocket provides an ergonomic fit for excellent energy transfer and accommodates a wide range of dive boots.
Anti-slip rubber pads on the bottom of the foot pocket give traction for moving around on boat decks.
Colors: Black/Orange, Black/Blue, Black/Pink, Black and White Arctic
