Review: The Scubapro Seawing Supernova fins tested by divingthisworld

Tami & Chris from divingthisworld were allowed to test the latest fins from Scubapro - the Seawing Supernova in the Limited Edition! You can now look forward to their feedback!

Fins are not only an essential part of moving underwater, but they can also help us move faster and more efficiently. So it definitely matters a lot what fins you go diving with. Scubapro released the new Seawing Supernova in 2022 and Tami & Chris tested and reported on them for us!

First Impression

Tami & Chris noticed the low weight of the Scubapro Seawing Supernova as soon as they unpacked them. The two fins weigh only 1.7kg and are therefore perfect for travelling! The fins are made of a very robust, but also lightweight elastomer.
The extravagant design also catches the eye! However, this has no optical background, but fulfils several positive aspects for an efficient fin stroke under water, which will be discussed in more detail in the practical test.
Another striking feature is that the fins have a very elastic bungee strap at the back, which on the one hand makes them very easy to put on and take off, but on the other hand is still very robust. The bungee strap of the Limited Edition is in a bright orange, but you can't buy them normally like this!
The fins are available in black and whithe in our online shop!

Exchangeable Foot Part

In addition to the fin bag that comes with the fins, there is also a small tool included in the delivery. With this tool, you can easily separate the fin blade from the foot section in just a few seconds! 
The biggest advantage of this is definitely again for Tami & Chris for their trips! The fin can be made smaller, becomes much more compact and can even be stowed in a backpack.
Other advantages are that the foot part can be easily exchanged, which guarantees several different uses with the same fin blade. On the one hand, the foot section can be varied in different sizes, depending on whether you are diving with normal boots or with larger drysuit boots, for example. And secondly, the open foot section can even be exchanged for a closed full foot section. So the fins are also perfect for snorkelling or for diving in warmer regions without boots!

The Seawing Supernova in the field test

The low weight of the fins was also noticeable in the practical test. Especially at dive sites where you have to walk a short distance, they are very comfortable to wear.
When diving, Tami & Chris were very surprised by the Scubapro Seawing Supernova! 
"We have to admit, we had some preconceptions about this type of fin before, especially since we had only dived tech fins before. So we were all the more surprised in the practical test! It already started when we put them on, the loops on the elastic bungee straps make them extremely easy to put on.
When diving, we had a very good propulsion with the Supernovas and were also able to dive with the Frog Kick as usual! After all, the fin kick was very important to us with new fins. "
