    LoL - not exactly, Harry! Probably a good enough song in it's own right, just thought it was a peculiar choice for this type of video. Still, just my opinion - which I guess is what the volume control is for! ;)

    This technique economical way to swim in flippers. Note that the movement of fins arecurved path. The repulsion comes from the stationary layer of water. thus higher strokeefficiency and air flow is reduced. Just here to see prices shown fine work fins, which is especially important in a confined space.
