These SKWIM fins float, so taking them out of the pool into open water conditions is okay. It is a drag to drop the other brands of fins that sink and have them lost and gone to the bottom of a lake, river or ocean.

The full foot fins are designed for pool and for calmer open-water use.

In surf conditions, it is better to use the adjustable strap Life Rescue and Surf Rescue Fins by eLifeguard. Fins offer great benefits in navigating open-water surges, beach-break currents and surf rip-streams.
