You would think that donning fins would be among the simplest of scuba skills, but they are easy to forget. Follow these steps to make it easier to remember, and to help you do it the correct way!

Choosing the Right Kick

Fin Kicks

Just as there is more than one way to skin the proverbial cat, there is more than one way to get from Point A to Point B under water. This is a good thing, as it not only allows you to choose the propulsion technique best suited for a particular situation, it also allows you to switch periodically between different kicks to help prevent cramping and exhaustion. Knowing all three kicks can help you handle your swim in any situation depending on the circumstances.
