Are there excercises which isolate 'the kicking technique'?

This should help.

Thank you Charles . Has anyone heard of Churchill fins ? Apparently they have been around since the 1930's . Any name brand suggestions for my slow , stiff ankle kicking. Have been through 2 pairs of Zoomers in the past 7-8 yrs without seeing much improvement.

Hmmmm.....

In theory, the Zoomers may be little too short to act as a good ankle stretcher, or so I was told.

Slim Fins made by Force Fin, a company in Santa Barbara --> http://www.forcefin.com/category/50.html

Longer and better all-the-way around than Zoomers. Churchill fins are nice for body surfing b/c they float, but for straight swimming Slim Fins are as good as it gets. They are slim enough not to interfere with flutter kick or body dolphin, are more comfortable than most other fins b/c there is no toe enclosure, give lots of thrust ... wish I could swim like that on my own.
