Churchill Makapuu Swimfins
Invented in 1936, Churchill Makapuu Fins utilize a patented dolphin design which gives you optimum power and acceleration for catching waves. Makapuu fins also act like a skeg on a surfboard to help maintain total control. The rubber covering your foot is soft for complete comfort while the rubber found on the blade is stiff for more kick power. Bonus mesh carrying bag included with every pair!

Q: I recently purchased Churchill swim fins. I purchased a size large for an 11 foot and when I put them on with swim socks I had an inch to the end like the chart says. I just wanted to clarify is it okay that there is room in the fin or should I switch to an ML.
A: Demand for everything was insane this summer, so we are now waiting on restocks. Churchills should be back in stock within 2 weeks. We do have Air Hubbs and MS Delta Vipers in stock now which are similar.
A: All the fins we sell float (except Tech 2s), but we strongly recommend fin tethers. Most of the time, if your fins are blown off in the surf, the waves hold them under and it's nearly impossible to find them.
