HYDROBLADE FINS TYR
Train hard, train smart in TYR Hydroblade Fins.

Engineered to promote short, quick movement through the legs and the feet, LFHYD fins help swimmers to create the natural flow of a flutter kick. With a 100% silicone construction and state-of-the-art comfort fit, the Hydroblade prevents athletes from feeling restricted as they move. In addition to an innovative heel strap design and convenient pull tab, each fin is also created with rounded edges to prevent discomfort in the fin’s foot cavity.

When it comes to specs the Hydroblade is a stand-alone piece of training equipment. In addition to channel side rails that amplify power in the water, all LFHYD swim fins also include an angled blade surface for upward kick resistance as you move. Plus, the Hydroblade comes in a variety of colour and size options, making it an ideal choice for swimmers at every level.

DOWNRIVER NOMAD By Rob Hutchings
Downriver Nomad: A Triathlete’s Adventures and Adversities into the Rapids
Triathlete and marathon swimmer, Rob Hutchings takes us on a whirlwind journey from triathlons and his first marathon swim in his home country of Canada, to Ironman competitions across the pond. Then down under to Australia and New Zealand where he embarked on marathon adventures off the beaten track, on land and in the water, which led to his biggest challenge – an unprecedented attempt at swimming the turbulent 256 km Clutha River.

In Downriver Nomad, Rob shares his story of adventures and adversities not only in the water, on the race-course and off the beaten track, but also his struggles with an alcoholic father and his own unsuccessful path to fatherhood.

His is a story of humour, heartbreak and challenges that will inspire the absolute beginner in adventure sports to the seasoned endurance athlete. Join Rob on his nomadic adventures in triathlon, marathon swimming and adventure sports, packed with hairpin bends, whirlpools, rock dodging and white-water rapids.
