How to install swim fin tethers

For a few, they’re a useless piece of gear. But for many, fin tethers, also known as swim fin savers, can simultaneously save your money and save your life.

Fin tethers connect your ankles to the swim fins, making sure you’re not losing them while riding a wave or getting ripped off by a close-out wave.

Remember that if you lose one fin, you won’t be able to buy another one individually – water sports companies only sell pairs, and there’s nothing you can do with a single swimfin.
