About Scubapro Seawing Gorilla Fins, Grey

The successor to the famous SCUBAPRO Gorilla fins of the 1980s, this new version of the award-winning Seawing Nova has been fine-tuned to provide a slight increase in stiffness and snap. They give you more power, more speed and even better frog-kick-ability while at the same time ensuring they still offer the legendary comfort and efficiency of Seawings! The GORILLAs are ideal for those diving in demanding conditions! The secret to the Gorilla Nova design is the articulated joint that allows the blade to pivot allowing the entire blade to generate thrust. Pivot control technology ensures the most efficient angle of attack is maintained no matter how hard or softly you kick, generating thrust without drag or wasted energy. Gorilla Nova incorporates clean water blade geometry for optimum propulsion. Water is free to flow onto the working section of the blade, resulting in drag reduction and a thrust increase. Variable pivot control ribs insure that the most efficient angle of attack is maintained across all strengths of kick.

Comfort is felt with Gorilla's ergonomic foot pocket with extended heel plate that insuring ultimate power transmission with less leg strain. Durable Monprene construction makes SeaWing virtually indestructible and wing tips arc upwards, increasing high-speed stability. The Fins have marine quality bungee heel strap with custom adjustment system for total comfort and convenience. Fins are available in four sizes from Small to X-Large and are covered by a limited lifetime warranty.

When scuba pro finally fixed the original flaws with this fin, I.E. the fin breaking at the pivot point with the old top cut design, I broke 4 pairs, each time at exactly 75-100 dives. After the re-design, flat top of pivot, I had put over 200 dives on that pair when the new Gorilla came out. I have dove about 35 dives so far with this fin, it is what it says it is, a stiffer version of the seawing nova, better engineered for improved frog kicking and bigger guys with stronger legs. I love this fin and with a lifetime warranty I will never have to buy another!!! Buy this, if your a female, or a small male, buy the reg seawing nova. I am 6'6" 260lbs and I dive about 300-350 dives a year. From the currents in Palau, to the calm of Bonaire, these fins rock!!

I was somewhat disapointed with these. They seem efficient under the water but for some reason they tend to cramp my feet. I have a pair of Aqualung Sling Shots and they perform just as well and are much more comfortable. I have tried to go back and forth many times and I find myself staying with the sling shots. Also, these fit a size up. I am 6 ft and 260 and wear normally an extra large fin, when I ordered these this way they were wayyyy too big. I returned and got just a large pair and they were a fit. I would say these are ok. If you buy them they will not be leaps and bounds above another premium fin.

    Comments about Scubapro Seawing Gorilla Fins, Grey:

    it helps in the sense of not having to do a lot of effort to kick, but it makes you go slow and also you can't apply al lot of pressure because it will bend.
    On time it will break, and it happened to me while going on a trip to Cozumel... I had to were cheap tourist uncomfortable fins. So they are not reliable at all. Big No! No! It can ruin your diving trip easily not to say it could cost more than that.

        When I got in the water, it felt like I had boards attached to my feet. "Downgraded" to the standard Seawings and am very happy.

          Those fins are designed for people with very strong legs. They are not flexible at all. I alternate the practice of mountain biking, road biking and jogging 6 days a week and my legs were not strong enough for this fins.

            I dive with a police underwater search and recovery team. We dive in coastal waters and fresh water. These fins can handle strong current and heavy surge. Some of the guys have lost fins in deep water. These bad boys float AND are guaranteed. I've also been able to improve my times on my physical quals that we do every three months. Love these fins!
