The team at Bodyboard Center tested some of the best bodyboarding fins & bodysurfing swimfins models on the market and we love it. They have used different criteria such as power, stiffness, foot pocket comfort, muscular demand and the most appropriate styles for each swim fin. Read the considerations on the 12 models tested.
