Monofins and Fins
Whether it’s for a 50-metre sprint or for a very long distance of 20 kilometres or more, it’s important to have an equipment adapted to the constraints of the discipline and your objectives. On short distances you will need explosiveness and very fast activation and therefore a shorter and stiffer blade. Conversely, as the distance increases, the fins will lengthen and the rigidity will decrease. It will be the same with monofins where it is necessary to choose the right stiffness. The hardness is also based of your size, a rigid blade gives more power but consumes much more energy, then the risk is to tetanize quickly. An excess of flexibility will have to be compensated by an increase in the frequency which is likely to asphyxiate quickly. For monofins learning a good undulation movement is not easy and some types of blades will help you more than others. The footpocket is also very important. It should provide you with excellent comfort throughout your training and competitions. and guarantee a transfer of maximum energy so that your finning is effective.
