September 1, 2006, Newsletter Issue #30: Snorkeling Equipment - Fins

Tip of the Week

A pair of fins can multiply your ability to move through the water while snorkeling. Before you go on your snorkeling trip, learn how to use your fins correctly. You must use an efficient kick. You can do this by using a slow flutter kick motion. Try to keep your knees and ankles relaxed to prevent your leg muscles from cramping.

Once you are proficient in this skill, you will notice that your fins propel you almost effortlessly through the water. You will hardly need to use your arms and can let them rest easily at your side, or keep one arm floating in front of your head to act as a bumper.
