The Eddy incorporates all the best characteristics of various scuba diving flippers into one. It starts with a blade design including ports to allow for better propulsion and a foot pocket that is actually designed to fit a human foot wearing a wetsuit or drysuit boots with a comfortable strap.
The perfect design deserves a perfect material. The eddy flippers are molded with a XXX material to ensure they're the right stiffness for maximum power, lightweight enough for travel, and really comfortable to dive.
Deep 6 incorporated all the best characteristics of various scuba diving flippers into one. We started with a blade design including ports to allow for better propulsion and we added a foot pocket that is actually designed to fit a human foot wearing a wetsuit or drysuit boots with a comfortable strap.
A note on the material: The S/M comes in a similar polymer material, just with a bit more flex to make the flippers a bit softer. All other sizes come in the standard flex material. Please contact us with any questions.
Sizing depends on the type of boot you're wearing, not your shoe size. If you buy the "SAME SIZE" as you wore in "XX Brand" without reading this part, you WILL get the wrong size. If you ask us to tell you what size you need based on your old fin that fits saying "I wear a XX Brand size X, what size Eddy do I need?"... we won't know. We don't have every fin on the market to compare our foot pockets to theirs, and won't have.
Customers have found wetsuit boots with a flexible sole in sizes 5-8 fit best in an S/M, 9-11 LG, 11-13 XL, above size 13 the XXL. When wearing wet-suit boots with a thick "sneaker" type sole or a dry suit-boot you should go to the next larger size. If in doubt get the next larger size as the spring straps are adjustable for a more custom fit.
Remember that a normal shoe is sized for the outside dimensions of your foot, which stays pretty consistent. Fins; however, have to be sized to fit the outside of whatever foot protection you choose and vary greatly depending on the brand.
Chris (the owner)has a 10.5 D US shoe size and wears the Large eddy fin with wetsuit boots or his dry-suit which has thinner boots (neoprene with a sole). He wears the XL when wearing wetsuit boots with the sneaker style sole or his dry-suit with larger boots. There will be some minor variances depending on the exact boot you wear. That said if you wear a size 12 with a softer sole boot you would be fine in an XL eddy fin. If rock boots or heavier sole foot covers are worn, you would be better off in an XXL.
