About Cressi Gara Professional LD Fins

After the great success of the Gara Professional and the Gara 3000 LD Cressi has combined the two designs and characteristics into the Gara Professional LD. The Blade is made from a special Elastomer Polypropylene which gives a Longer Lasting, more Fluid, and Softer Kick that is less demanding, making it ideal for covering long distances.

The use of this New Plastic is less Reactive than the Compoflex used in the Gara Professional. It is a Progressive and Controlled Blade, with Flexibility and gives an Extremely Fluid Kick. Together with the Exceptional Lightness and Non-Dispersion of Effort, the Kick is more Effective and Easier than ever. As with the other Gara fins (2000HP, 3000LD and Gara Professional) the Gara Professional LD Fins are made using processes that meet High Standards of Precision and Compliance with Strict Technical Parameters.

Foot Pocket: as with the Gara Professional fins, the New Foot Pocket of the Gara Professional LD has been designed to fit on the bottom of the actual fin blade. This feature, together with a well designed Blade-Foot Pocket Combination, Reduces the Fining Effort and the Dispersion of Energy during Fining. The Shape of the Foot Pocket has been redesigned and Improved further compared to the highly regarded foot pocket of the other Cressi Gara Fins. The use of a New, more Flexible Elastomer, makes the Foot Pocket more Comfortable.

Who are they for? The new Gara Professional LD are for all those divers who wish to benefit from the Extraordinary Performance of a Long Fin, without, having to use too much Muscle Strength, the ideal Effort-Productivity Ratio can offer even Higher Performance than when using the more Rigid and Reactive Gara Professional.

Fin is available in 4 sizes of US 7/8, 8/9, 10/11 or 12/13 and is covered by a 12 month limited warranty.

    Excellent Fin. I spend about 4 hrs a day in the water snorkeling and cover about 2 miles of water, I never feel like I have anything attached to my feet, but move very efficiently through the water and have the ability to chase down fish. You can move very quickly when you have to and can conserve all your energy when your just looking for fish from the surface.

    Very well made, but not as great as expected. Bougth them thinking they would be more efficient than my Gara 3000...
    Nahh... just prettier and maybe a little bit more comfortable on the shoe pocket. Not worth it... get the less expensive Gara 3000

        Got these for my boyfriend to start spearfishing and freediving with me. We take these out 2+ times a week. He says they are tight compared to the Reaction Pros, both fins are size 12-13.

              Comments about Cressi Gara Professional LD Fins:

              I took these out about 1000ft offshore to freedive some soft coral sites in the Guld of Mexico. They were easy to get on and long as heck, so no way was I walking backward into the water in them.)I swam out in pretty chopped 2-4 ft seas and dove down and cruised for very long distances searching out locations. A weight built may have helped me since when I head downward it takes these flippers abit to get them fully submerged. Definately nothing like snorkeling fins, since they are made for cruising at depth. I also noticed by fins were brushing together on my kicking motion, I beleive because the normal stride of my kick is closer together. I assume these fins are a slight bit wider than my old snorkel fins, but I just needed to adjust to them.

              Overall, couldn't be happier and glad to share how great these fins worked for me. My first pair of good, long, freediving fins and I plan to keep using them for years.

              Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
              MICAH B  Great price point. Although the blade is on top of the foot pocket (most are below the foot pocket), my SCUBA diving fins are the same way so I don't think it will be weird for me.
              Ali K  is it possible for the cressi gara professional ld fins to be available in size 39 ?
              Frank L  Unfortunately, no. they do not offer these fins in a 5/6 (38-39).
              johnny a  made in Italy?
