A little about fins
After using the riffe I swtiched back to the HF and I found it to be wonderful. Once my legs were used to using long fins they did not feel stiff at all, and the pocket is so much more comfortable for my feet then the riffe footpocket.
I have used these fins for several years now and have been pretty happy with them. The only thing is they don’t last forever. I know I don’t treat my gear as well as I should, so keep that in mind. But over time the cressis just break down from the sun and heavy use, kicking off the bottom etc. The blades eventually crack, at least for me. I keep using them even with cracks in them, but I am probably going to check out some other fins soon to see if I an get a little more life out of them.
