    My wife just started her open water class and we're having trouble finding fins that fit. She seems to be in between a small and a regular (small is to small, regular is to big). So far we've tried Hollis and Aqua Lung. Her boots are size 8. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Try different boots. Some boots are very big, some boots are pretty thin. I'd say go with Regular with a thicker size 8 boot.

    Will she be a warm water diver or cold water diver? If cold water diver - go with thicker boots and medium fins; if warm water diver only go with 3mm boots and the small fins. I'd look at Apollo and Scuba Pro fins too as their sizing may be a bit different. IF diving in WI, hey I'd add neoprene socks too!:D
