    I mean you can squeeze it in but it’s not optimal, and because of the wide ankle straps it doesn’t look great at all

    I had a feeling, but I wanted to be sure. I like the suntails Aurora tail but I worry about the foot pockets on their fins. The linden has really well designed foot pockets by comparison which is why I was curious. Thank you!!

    I like the guppy tails but I'm not overly in love with any of the designs. It's also somewhat out of my price range. I'm thinking I might just get the fin and some leggings instead. At least until I feel comfortable and sure that I want to continue the hobby. I have a bad back so I'm taking baby steps to see if I can handle it.

    Definitely a good idea! It’s such a beautiful monofin it doesn’t really even need a skin, most of the time I just take it out by itself

    It really is! I can't pick between the royal navy or the blue and purple. They're both so gorgeous. I actually found these super cute leggings on Amazon that would match either one. Just have to get a new bathing suit top and I'll be golden!

    Does the Fantasea monofin fit into the Fin Fun, Magictail and Sun Tail skins?

    The fin would more than likely collapse in on itself in one of those tails. It's extremely soft and floppy, not to mention wide. You'd have the tail tips hanging out and such. It wouldn't be ideal.

    Could you provide some pics? It'll be easier for me to figure out.

    I will update you on this (for FF and Suntails) when my Fantasea comes next week.

    Below video is my take on putting a Suntail Nunui in a Fin Fun. It sticks out a bit but it really isn't noticable. I might swim with it like this later.

    (Idk how to get it to embed in a forum) https://youtu.be/KkenIpZThpw

    You'd want to be careful in putting a Suntail Nunui into a new Fin Fun tail. You'll likely wear holes in it during the first swim. It should be fine if the tail skin is old and bit baggy, but never for a new tail. Suntail Nunui is wider and bigger on all sides than a Fin Fun Pro.

    Yeah after I looked at that green tail after the fin had been in there a while, I took it out and put it in my older orange one and swam in that instead. Worked really well til we were told no more 'fins' are allowed at that pool.

    As promised...kinda...so here are pics of the Fin Fun and Suntail Nunui (minus its feet pockets) over the Fantasea. I will see if I can stuff it into the other tails later. The pointy ends and weight make me think no. Idk if the 7 lbs of silicone would mess with their fabric or not but I wonder.

    Nope ( the linden is wayyyy wider, and would stretch the crap out of it even if you could get it in, a kids linden might fit? I’m not sure but the adult definitely doesn’t

    Hmmm it works on my phone's normal browser and my adblock phone browser. Those are direct links to the images. My laptop isn't in the shape to mess with it on a desktop
