Training in the pool - bottom surface of fins is worn out quickly


New Member

I do my training only in the pool and found that the bottom surface of fins is worn out very quickly because the pool floor works like a good sand paper.

How do you deal with it? Did you try to put any tape/film on the bottom part of the fin? Will it stick enough in the water?

Is it happening because probably I sometimes walk in my fins in the pool when I can't finish the 50m lane and return back instead of swimming - to let muscles relax. Probably should do less walking and more swimming. - The Worlds Largest Community Dedicated To Freediving, Scuba Diving and Spearfishing
