What makes them world-class?

Churchill Fins are the perfect balance between comfort and power. They deliver measureless power and acceleration without loosing comfort. The foot pocket is shaped for comfort and the blade does not strain your feet. Usually, there a trade off with fins with comfort versus power. However, the fins do a superb job of accomplishing satisfaction and agility.

Churchill swim fins were invented by Owen Churchill seventy-six years ago and have been acquired by Wham-O. Currently, Wham-O also manufactures Slasher fins.  Wham-O’s industry competitor rival is Viper Fins.

They are functional and stylish — perfect for bodyboarding. These fins work well to maneuver and feel great when performing tricks. This is due to the fins’ original dolphin-inspired shape, well shaped foot pocket, and flexible material. In addition, the bottom of the soft foot pocket is accompanied by a sand and water drain.

 

Materials

They are made out of 100% natural gum rubber. This is the best material to use for swim fins because it provides a firm but gentle fit and are environmentally friendly. There is a noticeable difference in rubber characteristics and quality, especially because of Malaysian rubber. You can check out details about this topic here.

 

What Do the Pro’s Think?

Top bodyboard professionals wear the brand including Jeff Hubbard and Mitch Rawlins, both credited with having the best style in the industry. World champions also include Andre Botha, Damian King and Amaury Lavernhe.
