    Is it possible to wear short fins or long fins when swimming in public swimming pools?

    Why short fins? Why not long fins?

    Because a) you're not trying to swim the extra distances that long fins are built for and b) it's more polite. There's less of a chance of you whacking people with short fins

    I would think so just ask the lifeguard. On the other hand who joins a gaming forum to talk about swimming? Don't get me wrong we all have our hobbies and it is fun to share them.
