I am looking for advice on best fin to reduce my hip pain and increase my time in the water snorkeling. I have both open and closed back aeris velocity fins. Closed back is better for the pain but still get pain regardless.

These have really helped me, as long as the current is not too strong. My husband got a pair large enough to wear with his hard soled booties. I found my first pair at a Sports Authority, but you can probably get some overnighted from Amazon.com, etc.

My mom had problems with knee pain while snorkeling. I bought her a pair of split fins. They are heavy but the fins are split and they are easier to "paddle" while in the water. They helped her a lot!

Split fins use more of a "flutter" kick as opposed to using the whole leg from the hips down.
