  • 12/23/2013 Sweet little kickboard

    5 Review stars By Perry C.

    I got this specifically for working my dolphin kick and for a smaller kick board in general. I am very happy with the choice. It's small, lightweight and easy to use - particularly with the finger strap. I love that it works so well below the surface when I'm practicing my dolphin kick - it keeps my neck from being pinched, which is a bit of a problem with the larger boards.

  • 11/11/2013 smaller than I thought, but a nice surprise

    4 Review stars By Morty

    I was looking for a kick board and found this. I thought it was the full size kick board, since I'd never seen a small one before. The photo is out of context, so it's hard to tell.

    It's really meant for one hand.  But to my surprise, it works pretty well as a kick board as well. Because its small and can easily go underwater, it provides just enough buoyancy for the drill without being too much.

    Side benefit is because it's small, it fits into my bag easily.

    I'd only recommend this for someone who's a little more focused in swimming and doing drills with a purpose. If you're looking for something to just kick behind and plod along, then find something else.

  • 2/24/2015 A find

    5 Review stars By gopk

    This is a terrific product. It is so much easier to use than the other ones around, and I've tried many as I have a freestyle problem kick. It's lighter and easier to manipulate. It works very well for breastroke, but I haven't tried it yet with fly and I haven't used it with a snorkel.
    I also appreciate the fact that it's more portable for traveling, and fits in the bag that I keep on deck with all my swim equipment.

  • 5/28/2014 Great with the swimmer's snorkel!

    4 Review stars By JWRTOO

    I'm an old person who only swims freestyle and only in preparation for triathlons. My pace is about 1:30 per 100 for 2000 yds.
    I don't like to kick and don't like kick board drills.
    I DO like the Alignment Kickboard when used with the snorkel. Using the Alignment board and snorkel keeps the head and chest down, and the torso aligned with the legs, similar to freestyle alignment.  The strap forces your hands to be stacked which in-turn forces your arms straight and head down so using without a snorkel would be difficult and counterproductive.
    Since I only flutter kick I can only comment on that performance.  I feel like, after only a few uses, I have improved my kick.
    My hands are small to average and the strap was pretty tight.

    Helps a lot with keeping proper alignment. It's easy to grab and more stable in water than a traditional board. I have used those for years without noticing any improvement to my flutter kick.
    It's also very compact and easy to fit in a back pack.

  • 2/18/2014 Great kickboard

    5 Review stars By Fitness swimmer

    This is small, lightweight and really convenient to use. I particularly like being able to use it one-handed (great for drills) and that it sits just under the water so it's helpful for getting a good body position. The only thing it doesn't do well (which makes me keep my trusty old techboard by the pool as well) is act as a pull buoy. But it does what it says on the box, and does it well. Great product!

  • 2/10/2014 Kickin' It!

    Lovin' this.  Excellent for one-arm drills, plenty of buoyancy for other drills I used a larger adult kickboard mentioned, fits easily in the swim gear bag!

  • 12/18/2013 Finis Alignment kick board

    5 Review stars By Drzchic

    I use for masters swim team. It took a little getting used to since it's  so light weight and not like other kick boards.   I am a crummy kicker and I am hoping this will help me. It doesn't make kicking any easier, or make me any faster  (lol) but it  seems to put me in a more natural position. It will be great for one arm drills too. It's an easy addition to my swim toy bag.



  • 8/25/2013 Works beautifully!

    5 Review stars By Kim M.

    When the alignment kickboard arrived and I saw its size, I was thinking I should've ordered 2. However, once I got it in the pool, I discovered how easy it was to use with one or both hands. My body stays in alignment and I am able to put my face in the water, unlike with traditional kickboards.

  • 8/6/2017 Effective work-out tool

    5 Review stars By Susan N.

    Other users' comments convinced me to add this FINIS kickboard to my collection of swim-related workout products.  This product has proven particularly useful: I am rehabbing leg/knee surgery, trying to strengthen and tone weakened leg muscles.  A conventional kickboard (which I also like: just not for multiple pool lengths) eventually produces neck and back strain.  When used in conjunction with the FINIS swimmers' snorkel, this FINIS kickboard allows one to keep one's head and shoulders well and comfortably aligned (and in the water) and thus to concentrate on a solid flutter kick.  

    I therefore recommend to those who want to enhance their workout and focus on a leg workout without fatiguing the neck and back.

  • 7/29/2017 Light and comfortable

    5 Review stars By Donna

    Traditional kickboards force an unnatural arch in the back. This sleek, lightweight board allows the swimmer to do kicks without back strain.

    5 Review stars By Finis Alignment Kickboard

    I learned to swim as an adult.  This little kickboard really helps me keep my stroke even and my head in correct position.  It is also lightweight and easy to take on vacation.

  • 11/12/2015 Amazing

    5 Review stars By Joel

    This board is perfect for what I needed. You're supposed to use it with a snorkel. It corrects your streamline well and it has a good boutancy for me. It fits easily in a mesh bag as well

    This kickboard is great easy to use and is very easy on your body, I love the strap makes the workout effortless. You can also use it swimmimg on your back sides and frontal , and the shape makes you feel like its a fin instead of the traditional box shape of kickboards. excellent product.

    I'm used to the big old kickboard.  This is lightweight and does the trick, takes a little bit of getting used to, but all in all great.

  • 8/9/2013 EZ on Shoulders

    5 Review stars By Stroker

    After rotator cuff surgery found I can kick again with a board.  Allows me to hold arms in streamlined position.  Probably should always have been using a kickboard like this because my horizontal body position is much better than with any other kickboard.
