Strap on a Fin and Learn to Swim!

We know how important learning to swim is for all family members. It’s a popular after school and recreational activity. SwimFin has been designed by a highly qualified UK swimming coach with over 30 yrs experience. It’s a vertical aid and suitable for children from 2 yrs+ of all abilities.

SwimFin can be used on all 4 strokes and is the only aid to have been endorsed by the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA). We’re very proud of that fact and are pleased to be partnered with leading organizations around the globe.

So how will it help your child to swim? It works in harmony with the body because it’s worn on the back providing total freedom around the arms and legs allowing for a natural swimming position, with the fin working like a boat’s keel in the water.

Kids love SwimFin because the shark element appeals as a fun piece of kit and encourages them into the water. It appeals to parents because it makes learning to swim more of a game than a chore. Tests have proved that it can reduce the process by up to a third less time.

It’s also perfect for taking on holiday as the fin is highly visible in a busy pool or on the beach!
