New Crowdfunding Campaign For Folding Fins Launched


Exotech has launched a crowdfunding campaign for the company’s new Folding Fins.

The fin features two rigging arms that can be folded, almost accordion-like, with a “bio-mimetic” membrane between them. The membrane mimics the soft tissue in fish tails or webbing between frogs’ legs.

The fins were initially designed for use by maritime special forces operators who needed to move around without dragging large bulky fins with them. The fins can be folded and stowed away easily, making them ideal for traveling divers as well as special forces soldiers.

(Remember: This is a crowdfunding campaign, so you are helping to fund the development of a project, but not a finished product. Please make sure you research the project before spending any money.)
