Swimming fins
Review of Speedo Training Swim Fins by DiegoAlatriste

Advantages: Speedo quality, good for non professionals.
Disadvantages: Not very comfortable for long serious workouts

Ok , here we go, first of all why do you need fins? One of the benefits they can offer is improved flexibility of an ankle. Also it helps you to swim faster and keep the stream line position of the body while swimming. Most of the fins will do this job. ... Read review

Review of Cressi Sub Matrix by RosesAreRed1207

Advantages: comfortable

Before my holiday in Jamaica, I bought a snorkel set as I wanted to spend time in the water looking at all the fish and although the hotel had snorkel sets to hire, I did not really fancy sharing a mouth piece with a stranger. We went on a boat trip and I ... Read review

I don't get on with Cressi Masks at all, not tried one yet I could get to fit me! I'm a little surprised that the lens is plastic, usually they're tempered glass as plastic is more likely to distort and crack if you use the mask for scuba. Plus if you don't have a raw potato around saliva does just as good a job of helping to defog masks. by angelfish28
