Amvantix -9 / Diving Fins

Amvantix -9
Amvantix -9

Snorkelers harm corals more than they think. According to the World Resources Institute, by 2030s, more than 90% of the world's reefs will be threatened by local human activities. A single dive site can suffer more than 200,000 damaging incidents per year, from trampling and kicking coral with fins, estimating 88% of divers make harmful contact with the reef at least once during a dive.

AmvatiX-9 is a pair of expandable diving fins, allowing divers to adjust their fins' length to prevent damage to the coral reefs. We hope the fins will help protect coral reefs, leading to the direct reduction of diver-related damage to coral reefs.
