Announcing our partnership with Finis!
We are proud to announce that this year we will be working with Finis to promote awesome swim gear and provide goodies at our big events. Finis will also be providing our beautiful bright swim caps as well as course materials and raffle prizes, so get ready to swim in style!
As well as producing top notch swimwear and equipment for adults, we love that Finis has a great selection of gear and goodies for younger swimmers as well – everything from funky swim caps to kid-size monofins. We’re always on the lookout for our New Waves swimmers wanting the best experiences in open water swimming – and that starts with comfortable and safe gear!
Founded in 1993 in Northern California, FINIS was founded by John Mix and Olympic Gold Medal Swimmer Pablo Morales. Understanding that improving one’s technique is the secret to swimming faster and enjoying the sport more, the duo went on to introduce truly innovative tools to the swimming community. Many of these products are currently used by US and international Olympic teams, elite Triathletes, and fitness swimmers worldwide.
Innovative research and design is FINIS’ highest priority. This dedication has resulted in truly innovative products such as: the Swimmer’s Snorkel which is recognized as the paramount tool to improve a swimmer’s technique, the SwiMP3 that uses bone conduction technology to play music instead of using ear buds, and the Z2 Zoomers fins which demonstrate intimate knowledge of swimming musculature, hydrodynamics and engineering.
FINIS is a Latin word that signifies “the end” or “grand finale.” It holds symbolic meaning to the company as it not only contains the word ‘fin’ (our first product), but the word FINIS also represents the true nature of why we, as swimmers, undergo such rigorous training schedules. We continue to strive and improve upon such an unnatural, but immensely rewarding sport.
FINIS is, and will always remain, whole heartedly committed to the discovery and development of innovative swimming products that enable athletes to meet that “end” or “grand finale” of a finish line that we as competitors and individuals set as a benchmark to become bigger and better than who we are today.
