If you use Najades, you might have heard someone mention trimming your fin straps. Maybe after you mentioned poolside how bloody uncomfortable they can be, or swore at whatever designer made them so fast and convenient at the same time.
Why trim? The strap can ride a bit high up the achilles, up to soft skin which can be not cool, and some people find the straight front part of the instep uncomfortable. But how to trim? Where?
We get this question now and then, so here is a handy diagram.
Please remember, as soon as you chop your fin, the 3 month warranty from Najade is history. You want to have nice smooth edges everywhere when you're finished.
Hydro takes no responsibility for any chopped up mess you may make of your fins... seriously :) Good luck!
