Monday, May 27, 2024 Launch Advanced Left Handed Carbon Monofin Launch Advanced Left Handed Carbon Monofin

We’re proud to be able to launch a new product that has been in development for 14 years – the Advanced Left Handed Carbon Monofin.  Born out of years of detailed research with some of the most advanced aerospace engineers, hydro-dynamic and bio-dynamic scientists, it caters for left-handed Freedivers who up until now have not had a monofin that truly suited their needs.

The issue was first raised in a private forum post to Founder Stephan Whelan in the year 2000, where the member detailed the woes of how left-handed Freedivers suffered a significant loss in thrust whilst using normal monofins designed only for right-handed Freedivers.  According to subsequent research it was discovered that left-handed divers suffer a 1/4 thrust loss in water when using a monofin compared to right-handed divers –  a significant disadvantage in the competitive sport of Freediving.

“As an issue not tackled by conventional Freediving equipment manufacturers we felt it necessary to cater for the 12% of men and 10% of women who are left-handed and suffering significant disadvantages when trying to pursue the amazing sport of Freediving” said Stephan Whelan.

The monofin will cater for all left-handed Freedivers although has been tuned for specifically providing significant support in left-handed Freedivers who want to compete in Freediving competitions.

The Advanced Left Handed Carbon Monofin is due to be available to the public in June 2014, priced at $250 and available exclusively via
