Care and Maintenance: Dive Fins

The following information is provided for products that do not have a specific owner's manual and is intended as a general guide for basic care and maintenance of your Scuba Equipment.

Care before and during the Dive:

  • Avoid standing your fins on the tips of the blades for any extended period of time.
  • Avoid hot temperatures and hot surfaces as these can damage the fin.
  • 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.

Care after the Dive:

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

Fins storage:

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


  • Avoid any contact with alcohol, oil, gasoline, aerosols, or chemical solvents.
  • Do not expose any part to aerosol spray, as some aerosol propellants attack or degrade rubber and plastic materials.
  • 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.
