How to Care for Diving/Snorkelling Fins Before and During Use

  1. Avoid standing your diving/snorkelling fins on the tips of the blades for any extended period of time.
  2. Avoid hot temperatures and hot surfaces as these can damage the fins.
  3. Avoid placing the fins in a car trunk on hot days as the temperatures inside car trunks can exceed the temperature tolerances of the fin and the blades may distort.

How to Care for Diving/Snorkelling Fins After Use

  1. Rinse thoroughly with fresh water and towel dry before final storage.

How to Store Your Diving/Snorkelling Fins

  1. Store in a cool, dry and protected place out of direct sunlight.

Diving/Snorkelling Fins and Chemicals/Solvents

  1. Avoid any contact with alcohol, oil, gasoline, aerosols, or chemical solvents.
  2. Do not expose any part to aerosol spray, as some aerosol propellants attack or degrade rubber and plastic materials.
  3. Do not use any type of alcohol, solvent or petroleum based substances to clean or lubricate any part.
    Do not store your equipment near any oil, gasoline, chemicals, or solvents.
