Hi Michael,

I always recommend the longer fins (swimoutlet or finis), not shorty's for both new and advanced level swimmers. This will help you feel the kick flow from the hips through the long fin, as well as help reduce/remove excess knee bend or early kick from the knees (difficult to bend the knee with long fins). But as sojomojo noted, don't become dependent on the fins - only to feel the flow from hip to fin-tip, then remove and try to achieve same feeling without the fin.
