About Scuba Pro Seawing Nova Open Heel Fins

If you are the type of diver who wants cutting edge technology with you at depth, look no further that the SCUBAPRO Seawing Nova Fins. This fin comes with the security of the SCUBAPRO name with the thrill of SCUBAPRO innovation. The Seawing Nova combines classic SCUBAPRO fin technology with the latest innovations in hydrodynamic design and cutting edge materials. This fin has the power, acceleration and maneuverability of a paddle fin with the comfort, efficiency and effortless speed of split fins.

The Seawing Nova brags of having an articulated joint, which will propel you through the water with ease, speed, agility, and amazing comfort. What makes the Seawing Nova so amazing? First, it has variable blade geometry; second, it has an articulated joint. What is an articulated joint? Think about how a dolphin's tail moves as it swims; the natural structure of the tail bends as if it is on a hinge and provides the dolphin with remarkable power. The same science was applied during the development of the Seawing Nova. The variable blade geometry brings us back to the dolphin. As a dolphin's tail moves upward, the tips bend down a bit to make it more streamlined. The Seawing Nova's edges do the same thing as the diver's kick is on the upward swing. As the foot moves downward, the fin flattens out to create an amazing amount of power and thrust. The articulated joint allows the blade to pivot and the entire blade is able 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.

The Seawing Nova fins are made using high-tech Elastomer Monoprene construction, which means they are stronger and more flexible than you'll ever need them to be. Variable pivot control ribs insure that the most efficient angle of attack is maintained across all strengths of kick. An added bonus to the Seawing Nova fins is the bungee heel strap. This design frees you from fumbling with heel strap clasps (a true pain for people wearing thick dive gloves and nearly impossible for those wearing dive mitts) and the annoying task of cinching down your heel straps. Simply slide the strap over your heel and you're ready to go with a perfect fit. Go ahead give them a try; you won't be sorry. The Seawing Vented Fin is available in sizes Small, Medium, Large or X-Large, comes in Black, White or Blue colors and is covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

The Scuba Pro Seawing Nova Open Heel Fins is commonly used for Recreation, SCUBA, Snorkeling, Travel and more. The Scuba Pro Seawing Nova Open Heel Fins is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Advanced, Beginner, Casual/ Recreational, Professional among others.

I am new to scuba diving, but an avid snorkeler. I have tried many fins in the past and these are the fastest, lightest most comfortable fins I have ever used. On a recent trip to the USVI my wife and I decided to get our open water certs. We both bought a set of these at our LDS (For alot more $$)and used them for 7 days straight. I am in less than great shape being 6'1" 295lbs. I NEVER felt strain, excess resistance or even tired for that matter. These are so easy to put on and pull off even under water. For the first time ever I did not have to adjust anything, and frankly did not notice them at all. The flex joints provide amazing power. Great product here.

Deception

I'll never by another one like it.
Not only is too soft paddling, but it really breaks too easily.

Excellent recreational dive fins

    Comments about Scubapro Scuba Pro Seawing Nova Open Heel Fins:

    First thing I noticed is that it's lightweight. It's easy to carry during dives and travels.

    Putting them on and taking them off is very easy because of the bungee strap. Because of the straps, open hell construction and its light weight, I don't feel any pressure/stress on my feet.

    Great performance during dives. For recreational dives, I hardly make any big feet movement to push myself forward. It does ok during drift dives but it doesn't compare to the shorter jet fins. This serves me well as I consider myself a recreational diver.

    I got me a white one. After 6 months, I bought my partner the pink version. She loves it as well. Our diver friends also appreciate the visibility that these colors provide (for safety reasons).

    After 50+ dives, the only wear and tear that I noticed is that there is a slight discoloration on the edges. I don't see any signs of stress or cracks in the joint areas, which was one of the warnings I received before I bought it.

          I enjoyed these the first 3 years of use (~ 50-60 dives), but the articulating hinges began to crack during the last trip. This was covered under ScubaPro's warranty - and LeisurePro handled the exchange expeditiously. The replacements have a design change (presumably to account for the fatigue-factor) - I'm looking forward to the next trip. Even with the failure, I would still recommend them. My wife has the same fins, and hers are still perfect.

          I have used mine on my last 12 dives and love them. They push me through the water with little effort. They are built very solid and are comfortable on multiple dives. I won't be looking for another set of fins for a long time! Loved them so much I got a set for my girlfriend and she loves them to.

          Terrific fin. Very lightweight so great for travel. Extremely easy to don/doff.

          NOT great in strong currents, but that's not what they're made for. If you want a fin for currents, go with the Gorillas or Turtles, or something similar.

          Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
          dave d  So I don't sink
          Shopper  are they good for people with back and knee problems?
          MALCOLM W  No. Too stiff. Get split fins instead.
          Shopper  I am a U.S. 10.5 shoe size, and will be diving mostly in warm water w/ 3 mm booties. Should I go with mediums or larges? I see conflicting info on different sites. Any answers would be helpfull?
          AMY R  My husband wears a 10 - 10.5 shoe and I purchased medium fins. He wears them with 3 mm booties and the fit is great. My son wears a 12 shoe and also has medium fins. They're awesome - fast and easy to put on/take off.
