The SwimFin is a swimming aid that straps onto a child’s back to provide buoyancy and encouragement. Its shark fin shape not only looks cool, but also allows for a full range of arm movement so little swimmers can practice all kinds of strokes unimpeded. SwimFin is available in seven different colors and can be purchased at their website.
It should be worn high on the back, above the centre of gravity. This way it will ‘suspend’ the child in the water – it will not tip a child forward if worn correctly, as can be seen in the photos. A SwimFin should never be used with a baby that cannot control their body yet, and it must NEVER be worn on the front of the body.
