Designed for children between the ages of 3 - 6 years of age, up to approximately 30 kgs in weight. What is SwimFin? 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. Unlike other swimming aids, SwimFin is multi-stroke functional. It leaves the arms completely free to move and so can be used to learn front-crawl, back-stroke, breast-stroke and butterfly. SwimFin works for all ages and abilites: from toddlers taking to the water for the first time, all the way through improved learners to advanced swimmers who want to develop stroke technique. We use SwimFins in our own swimming lessons so can attest to their value for children of all ages from around 3 years upwards
Please note: SwimFin comes in one size only. SwimFin has been tried and tested and is proven to work for all ages, sizes and abilities. However, the packaging there is a chart says SwimFin is suitable for children 15-30 kgs and gives an approximate age range of 3 – 6 years. This is a legal requirement for all buoyancy aids that have undergone safety testing and is for guidance only.So, what happens if you have a child who is 5 years old but weighs 33kg? Is SwimFin suitable or isn’t it? All we can say is that we have testimonials from people around the world telling us that it works for children of all ages.The inventor of SwimFin, Kevin Moseley, is six-foot-three-inches tall, weighs over fourteen stones (that’s approximately 200 pounds or 90 kgs) and a SwimFin will keep him afloat (he has personally tested this.)This should give any parent or teacher peace of mind. However, as stated on the underside of eachSwimFin, it must be used under constant, capable supervision.
