How to Install Dafin Fin Savers

When I first started bodysurfing I got away with not using fin savers/fin tethers. However, when I lost my first pair of bodysurfing fins in big surf, I realised how important fin savers are. There's nothing worse than being caught in the engine room after a heavy wipeout, with no fins. Fighting the waves to stay afloat, coupled with the thought of forking out for another pair is less than ideal. I made the decision there and then that I would buy fin savers with my next pair. When I first got the fin savers, I had no clue how to put them on. So i've written this post, so you do have a clue.  

These are the instructions on how to install DaFiN Fin Savers. 

1. Buy DaFiN's and Fin Savers.
