Abstract

The swim fin has a shoe (1) in which the user's foot is fitted and a fin (2) which is independent of the shoe. Two flexible rods (3), on each side of the foot, pass through points (6) approximately at the centre of the shoe. Ribs (5) on either side of the fin, form an extension of the rods. A strap (8), which goes round the leg at the level of the calf, is joined to the other extremity (7) of the rods. The fin is flexible and a movement of the foot flexes the rods between the points 6 and 7 and the fin.
