When I first learned to swim (self-taught), wearing swim fins gave me confidence. I also thought that I couldn’t effectively kick without swim fins. For two years, I only swam with fins before I decided to wean myself off it. I didn’t go “cold-turkey.” My normal routine is to swim for 45-60 minutes. The first 10-15 minutes, I’d swim with fins. Then I’d take them off and swim for 10-15 minutes without the fins. I alternated this fins on / fins off for the entire 45-60 minutes. As I got more comfortable swimming without fins, I found myself wearing swim fins less and less. I was surprised at how quickly it happened. It’s gotten to the point that it now feels awkward swimming with fins.
