This shark fin shaped buoyancy aid from SwimFin gives children a safe and secure feeling when learning to swim and leaves their arms free to learn their swim strokes. Designed for children between the ages of 3 - 6 years of age, up to approximately 30 kgs in weight.
SwimFin is a teaching aid, flotation device and fun water toy all in one. 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. SwimFin inspires imagination and play. When a child puts on a SwimFin, they immediately become more active, playing, building confidence, learning, experimenting and having FUN! SwimFin plays a psychological part in learning to swim, even before a lesson has started. Kids love the feeling of safety and security SwimFin gives them, while it motivates and encourages imagination and play.
The most important thing about SwimFin is this: the more submerged it is, the more support it is giving. This means when the child is vertical, doggy paddling through the water, SwimFin will be almost completely submerged, giving maximum support. As the child’s body position becomes more horizontal, SwimFin comes out of the water giving less support. This means the child is swimming more for themselves with less and less assitance. And Swimfin never has to be inflated, deflated, or need to have additional support added or removed as with armbands/discs, body vests etc.
Please note: SwimFin comes in one size only.
