Finning technique: Frogkick
Updated: Feb 22, 2019
When it comes to swimming around under water, few 2 legged creatures are better at it than the frog. Maybe that is why this finning technique we are discussing today is called the frogkick.
Why bother? flutterkick - frogkick who cares?
Well if you care about the visibility or your gas consumption or let's say getting more control over your drysuit, you should consider using the frogkick at your primary swimming technique when scuba diving.
Using the frogkick you use less power because you are not using your big thighs. You dont silt our the bottom because you send the water flow backwards and up. And last but not least you stay more balanced, because both legs stay at the same depth.
It's just 3 small steps to get started
Get your feet in the right position
Push water backwards rather then kicking
You kick and glide... kick and glide... practice practise, keep those knees up!
