I recently went looking for a new set of fins for my 11 year old, who is now hitting 40 feet with a weak pair of snorkeling fins (can you tell papa is proud?). He has small feet and isn't big enough (or strong enough) for long fins, yet. I found a set of cressi rondine lights, the new model is called "rondalets" I think. They are pretty long for regular fins and the plastic is much more snappy than what's in most plastic longfins, almost like fiberplastic. We have tried them in the pool, but not yet in the ocean. So far, they look like a real good solution for him. much better for freediving than anything else I've seen. Since they make a full range of sizes, these might be good for others with small feet and relatively weak legs.

Does anyone else have any experiance with these fins??

Sorry - don't know those ones, but I would recommend a pair of sporasub radicals because:

They are very soft
They will help him learn good finning technique
He will get to use long fins (like daddy)
He can change footpocket size when he is bigger

and....

He can eventually change blade when daddy buys him C4s for his 16th b-day :D

Howzat?

Unfortunately they are no longer produced - but you will still find a few pairs in shops and possibly get some second hand.

I've got a set of blades going spare, but since you are not in the UK - it wouldn't make sense to send them over. You'll be sure to find a pair in the US.
