    I dive all black, there's nothing wrong with color. I used to dive with black and lime green, or blue. I went to solid black, because it's a classic look.

    Marine mammald have flippers, fish have fins. What do you think a person is closer to?

    Beside the whole more accurate thing, some folks started using "fins" to be "superior" to snorkellers and that is proven every day over and over when someone corrects or scoff when someone uses flipper.

    I have been diving since 1981, have over 6000 dives, full time dive pro since 1995, sold more flippers than I could count, even literally 40 ft container loads of them and I wear flippers on my feet when I teach a resort class, a cave or trimix class or teach folks to be instructor trainers.

    That's awesome, does it mean you like them or hate them?

    I have a regular buddy who is a straight guy who lamented the fact that he couldn’t get the new fins he wanted in pink as they didn’t make his size. He likes pink for visibility. He does have a pink snorkel. ;-)

    My course director when he was in Guam lost a diver to another boat. Pink is his color of choice as a result. Makes sense.

    Stupid to make comments about the orientation related to color. Sounds stupid just typing it.

    He quoted the picture I posted of the white fins. So I thought he was talking about those. Which is why I mentioned the size small. Completely forgot about the blues still left.

    Lots of rubber (real rubber) in the early days of scuba. Wanna guess what color it was?
