Joseph works the Scubapro Seawing Gorilla Fins

written by Joseph Bicanic – Perth Scuba InstructorScubapro Seawing Gorilla Fin Review

As an Underwater Videographer and Instructor I am careful about the type of fins I use and recommend. There are several excellent fins out there that serve different purposes. So selecting one set of fins, to do a multitude of tasks, is not as simple as it may seem.

Last weekend I trialed the new ScubaPro Sea Wing Nova Gorillas. Impressive to say the least. I own a pair of the Sea Wing Nova’s Mk 2 (hinged on the lower side only). I switched to the Nova’s from another leading brand as I wanted something that was easier on my legs (unfortunately I am prone to leg cramps). The Sea Wing Nova’s offer good control, easy on the legs, minimal silting and reasonably easy to Frog kick in. However I found them slightly under-powered when I was in a Dry suit and carrying twins and stage cylinders or trying to catch Students.

Enter the Sea Wing Nova Gorillas. To look at they appear the same as its predecessor (other than colour). That changes when you hit the water fully kitted out. More power, better control, easier to Frog Kick, easier to swim backwards, easier to catch your students and, most importantly, just as easy on your legs.

A noticeable improvement with no greater effort on behalf of the Diver.

Perth Scuba have these available for try dives. But be warned, once you try you will want to buy.
