The Foil Technique Monofin teaches the Foil Body Motion developed and made popular by Coach Bob Gillett. The Foil Body Motion utilizes the entire body to create a powerful and undulating dolphin kick through the water. The Foil Monofin promotes an equal use of up and down kicks for propulsion throughout the entire dolphin kick movement, increasing core and leg strength. Natural rubber provides a secure and comfortable fit.

A legacy of innovation
John Mix had his first encounter with a monofin in 1988 during a semester abroad in Austria. Monofin in hand, John returned to the States convinced that this tool was the next big thing in aquatic sports. Throughout the years, the FINIS monofin has taken many forms, ranging from competitive to recreational. In 2010, FINIS collaborated with coaching legend and underwater kicking guru, Bob Gillett, to bring the Foil monofin to the market.
Finis recommends: If you are in between sizes, users with a wider foot should size up. Otherwise Finis recommend sizing down for a tighter fit.
