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.

    These fins replaced 20 year old Mares (the first generation of quatro fins .. They were double back then). Took a few visits to the pool to get used to them and appreciate the benefits the design and "stiffness" offer in the water. Bottom line, they are strong, efficient and get me from point A to point B quicker and more efficient than any other fin I had in the past. First 2-3 hours in these fins had me doubting the investment .. Took a lot of water time to get my legs accustomed to the most effective way to drive them in the water. 25 years ago I was given a pair of Aqua Lung rocket fins .. It took me weeks of water time to get used to those and appreciate them .... So, to the doubters, give them time .. They are stiff and it takes practice to get them do what they were designed to do. Only thing I would change .. Make the strap adjustable .. Allow user to set how tight or loose the straps are ... Shoe size 10. - large with 3mm boot feel perfect

    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!

                Truda H  I'll get a Poseidon Gear Bag (52L).., and very interesting in this fin (size S)..does anyone knows if this fin could fit into Poseidon Gear Bag in size 52L ? thanks..
                ATILIO A  gorilla very good gear , very nice fins , i'liked.
                Richard N  Can a giant stride entry be a problem with this fin?
                TAZ G  I have no issues with the giant stride. Giant stride is not about the fin but weight distribution entering the water. If you have no air in BCD you will sink shortly after entering due to the weights added. If you have air, you are good to go
