First Impression

In a hurry and looking for the gist of things? Here is our review in short. Keep reading for the entire version.

ScubaPro’s Seawing Nova Pro fins look like something out of a sci-fi movie and are among the most popular scuba fins on the market.

They feature a two-part design in which the foot pocket and the blade are connected through two extra springs in the middle. This makes the Seawing Nova Pro fins some of the fastest I have ever used.

They are incredibly comfortable and their foot pocket leaves you feeling like you are not wearing fins at all.

The ScubaPro Seawing Nova Pro fins perform very well in both flutter and frog-kicking situations, although they are not the best in terms of backward finning or when doing helicopter turns. You just have to try a few fin-kicking techniques to find the right one.

Featuring a number of different colors across the spectrum, you will find some that fit your style. I can testify that you will be seen in those pink ones…

Another advantage is that these fins come in both open-heel and full-foot configurations, so you can pick which one suits your style best.

The drawback of their design is that they are longer than others and might not fit into your suitcase as easily.


If you are looking for some of the best scuba fins that are super comfortable, check out the Seawing Nova Pro.
