This page is targeted to those people who are not practicing Finswimming but they want to do it, and they don’t find any kind of informations in the Internet. Let’s start explaining that this sport is not difficult as it can seem in the first view. In fact everyone can do it, and the only things needed are the ability to swim a little bit, and the willing to have fun 🙂
Finswimming can be practiced by youngsters, middle aged and also oldest ones!
Let’s take a pratical example: “I’m a novice, coming from a swimming course or from an agonistic club, and I heard about a strange sport called Finswimming…what should I do if I want to do it?”. Well first of all we hope that you are located in Europe or Asia or in some of the South American Countries. In fact, and unfortunately, our sport is not available everywhere! We miss from North America, Africa and a lot of other places. To be clear the best places where we can “finswim” easily are: France, Italy, Germany, Russia, Greece, Spain, Ukraine, Denmark, Czech Rep and Slovakia, Hungary, China, Japan and South Korea, Colombia, Venezuela, Chile. Then in other places there are various Clubs, like Suisse, Croatia and Slovenia, Austria, Lettonia/Estonia, Belgium, Netherlands, Vietnam, Peru, United Kingdom (they are growing very fast, mostly in London! This is a very good thing for us), Turkey, Egypt, Belarus. Then there are places where it’s difficult to find it like USA, Australia and New Zealand (but something is moving right there too). Check the following map to understand what we mean, Europe is full-covered!
You can find most of all the Finswimming Clubs trough an useful tool called Club Finder at this link. It contains a lot of Clubs, but not all of them! Please help us to complete the list!
Ok another pratical example: “I live in Milan, what do to now?”. Easy! Just try to contact a Club. For example we choose the Club NPS VAREDO.
We just have to check the relative web site for a first contact with them…and that’s it!
No matter who you are, maybe one day you will be able to do something like that.
