...it is not here yet, but the idea for it is hidden deep inside my head.

I´ve always been a very big fan of WaterWay, but something has always been missing to make it unique.
A very good friend of mine (guess who :) ) and I, have been talking about the construction, materials and so on and even presented it to WaterWay, but we have never been credited for it, and the idea has never been understood 100%. -And to bad for you WaterWay, because now I (we) invite manufactures of monofins to work with us on this fin, wich will perfect!

Please contact me: [email protected]

Best regards...

Peter P

Hi

I am still working on the perfect mono after 2,5 years of slow development and big money spent....

Laminar and I were also working on a 'mega' monofin, but we put the project on hold, and decided to work on the F1 because we thought it would sell more.... maybe eventually we will get back to the mega-mono.

Here is a taste of my development. (I try to attach an image...)

Forgot to mention, since I started using my own monos my dynamic apnea results have increased with 21m and my CW with 13m. It's probably not only the fin that makes the difference but it's better than any fin I tried and I treid many. :)

Looks slick. :) Carbonfiber I presume (from the looks)?
What are those footpockets?
How do you consider it's stiffness? (compared to WW blades for example).
What makes it different? :)

DeepThought:

The differences is:
-Foot position
-Stiffness of the blade (the right stiffness along the blade, bending line)
-Very low weight
-The lamination of the different carbon layers in the blade makes it very very "snappy"

This footpocket is new and so far I have used earlier prototypes and standard pockets on my blades.

The bending line is something near WW but it may be softer. I use very very tight pockets and taht makes a HUGE difference in the fins behavior. A normally soft blade can feel hard if the foot is fixed.

Hello .... those carbon ones are amazingly beautifull ... ohoh ...
I like those pockets too ....
Is there any chance of getting some of your monos? Like... older not so good prototype :) hehe :)
And ... one question for you monofin redesign masters .... what is currently the best solution if I want to dive with mono in open water ... cold water ... and need to stay for say one hour session? using some neoprene socks is must .... the water is very cold here .. 6 C down there

Thank you all :)
and ... keep it up ... i cant wait to be able to buy the ultimate freediving monofin ....I was always thinking that swimimng and FD needs for a mono will be different.


C ya ...

hi all,

for those on a quest for the perfect mono fin: peter p. was just recently trying out a new fin design. it's a small company he came up with who makes them and he was full of praise for the thing. if peter says so i suppose it's something worth having a look at. maybe he will post some details on it.

cheers,

roland

Oh ... thank you for the info ...
is there any chance how to contact him or his small company?
Peter ... please ... show us :)
I have to resolve this monofin buying problem quite soon, but id love to have something really suitable for us freedivers, blade and footpocket-wise. So please if there is any possibility to get some wicked stuff at reasonable price, please please let me know.
