Anyone who has tried to walk while wearing flippers will know the problems it can cause and also the accidents. To help children enjoy the benefit of flippers but not the awkwardness, Lee Price based in Canada has created Tailfins.
A new kind of flipper designed specifically for children that allows them to walk along the beach, rather than trip.Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the unique design of Tailfins and how they can allow children to walk and even run on the beach while being worn.
Safer and easier to walk in and climb swim ladders with. See why TailFins are the perfect swim fins for children. NO MORE TRIPPING, FLIPPING OR FLOPPING! TailFins are swim fins (flippers) that children can swim, walk and climb with. They allow your children to safely get in and out of the water without the tripping hazard of the long, front fins found on older style flippers.
AN INNOVATIVE REDESIGN! We removed the long, front fins that kept tripping up children and added our patent-pending “Hydro-Wings”. These specially designed fins are placed on both sides of the foot and are raised up and away from the ground, making it a lot easier to walk, run and climb.
MORE RESPONSIVE WITH LESS EFFORT! Because our Hydro-Wings are fixed to the side of the foot, they provide an immediate response as soon as the foot begins to move. There is no delay – compared to older style flippers where the foot moves first and then the fin follows afterward. And Because TailFins are smaller than most flippers they require a lot less effort than the older flippers and still provide your children with the thrust and stability you’d expect.
Tailfins is now available to back via Kickstarter with early bird pledges starting from CA$32 and delivery expected to take place during Kickstarter. For full specifications and more information jump over to the official Kickstarter campaign page via the link below.
