Churchill Slasher fins available at the Slyde store

Churchills are my personal favorite, mostly because I hardly get sore feet in them, and if I do its because I've been out for a very long time. These have a great fit for me personally, and one pair lasts a long time. Also, they truly are floating fins.  Even when we tested them in the chlorine (less dense than salt water) pool they had a lot more buoyancy than the other fins we were testing. Although, there is a lot to be said for the fact that if you lose a fin, it’s lost for good, but its always good to know that you may have a chance to retrieve it.  To find out more about purchasing fins and a side by side comparison, check here or BUY NOW.

Churchill Slasher fins now available at the Slyde storeChurchill Slasher "Floating" Fins are the most comfortable fins in the world. They are designed for bodyboarders, but are incredible for bodysurfing and handboarding.  This hybrid of the Makapuu fin is extremely lightweight and is engineered to fit the foot. The rubber covering your foot is soft, while the rubber found on the blade is stiff to ensure maximum power and thrust for paddling.

Made out of 100% natural rubber, the Churchill Slashers propel swim fins to a revolutionary level of comfort, allowing you to maximize your kicking power and acceleration.  Churchill began with their dolphin tail design and then sculpted individual right and left shaped pockets that are super comfortable.
