    I think MK10, based on the swivel cap.

    I'm guessing SP Mk10 109 too.

    Those Dolphin fins are still made in Japan by Gull Marine Sports (Kinugawa Rubber). They are one of the products in the company's AQA line designed for swim training and recreational snorkelling and come in a range of colours:

    As for the fins in the video, I remain minded to identify them as possible Super Perry fins, made during the 1970s or thereabouts in Italy. What АлександрД aptly calls a "tonguelet" on the top of the blade is the most distinctive feature of these full-foots:

    The same fins are worn in this video too:

    I must say that he got the equipment pretty close, but 2 points (ahem).

    - the fish bothering makes me cringe
    - you can copy the gear, but you sure can't copy Ms. Bisset

    Not sure what she’s breathing off, but Nick I believe It to be a Spinnaker. Does that thing have dual diaphragms?

    do not know about Nick`s Spinnaker , I`d try to find any manuals or drawings, to know how is made the valve, but never see it, just outer view.

    But most wondering regulator Jacqueline has. It is Piel.

    It has pilot valve and crazy scheme... and really tiny size, despite arrangement...

    Don't tell @The Chairman, but it looks like Ms Bissett has similar buoyancy problems as our pool model. But a compensatory bcd would obscure other equipment. Another D- grade.
    What to do?
