WHAT IS FINSWIMMING?
This technical movement is very different from the other swimming styles.
It resembles a dolphin floating in the water.
Swimmers use a single-piece pallet, specially made of fiberglass, with a large surface area. The athlete’s feet remain constant, they are not separated.
This gliding movement immediately tells us this sport is not easy at all. Another interesting equipment that is needed for monofin is a specific snorkel.
The technique of swimming with monofin, should be applied as fluently and simply as possible. The feet are in a large palette and they make the same stroke. The arms are extended forward over the head without actively participating in the motion and are held constantly there. The hands are placed on top of each other and the friction with water is minimized. Breathing is done with the help of a snorkel.
