The Finis Alignment Kickboard enhances aquatic workouts by helping swimmer's maintain optimum body alignment and lengthen their body position during streamline, underwater and side kicking drills.
Promotes Alignment and Relieves Tension
The Finis Alignment Kickboard is a hydrodynamic foam board with a stabilizing hand strap for security. By incorporating the hand strap and using it in conjunction with the 3 ridges underneath the board that channel water catamaran-style, swimmers can control the board without gripping; this creates a perfect alignment from the finger tips to the toes and relieves unnecessary tension in the hands, arms, shoulders and neck.
Versatile Design for Use in All Strokes
The Alignment Kickboard works with all swimming strokes, and is also great for single arm drills.
The Alignment Kickboard creates a perfect streamline in the water. Its hydrodynamic design reduces drag, and by aligning and lengthening your body drag is reduced still further. The Alignment Kickboard sits just a few inches below the water line, so swimmers can lengthen their body without kicking at an incline.
A high density material creates perfect balance and buoyancy. Ergonomic grip pads promote better handling and a more comfortable grip, while the Alignment Kickboard's short design puts less pressure on the shoulders as compared to standard kickboards.
Each Alignment Kickboard is made of a sturdy foam material coated for durability and resistance to the damaging effects of chlorine.
The Finis Alignment Kickboard is extremely lightweight, weighing only 3.1 ounces. The base of the kickboard is 12” wide and the board itself is 11” long at the sides. Its lightweight structure and compact frame make for easy packing travel.
The Alignment Kickboard is available in blue only.
For additional technique improvement, consider the Finis Center Mount Swimmer's Snorkel, which eliminates the need to come up for air and allows you to concentrate on head alignment and improving your stroke.

The AquaGear Opinion
Finis spared no expense with fabric-covered foam that feels softer than foam boards. The Alignment Kickboard really does align the body perfectly, but this is not an uncomfortable feeling. The straps on the kickboard are durable and anchor all the way through the board. The Finis Alignment Kickboard is smaller than a standard board, but this streamlined shape gives it all of its unique benefits.
The Bottom Line
The Finis Alignment Kickboard is a great training tool for building muscle memory of optimum body alignment, and then transferring that to your unaided stroke. Get your Alignment Kickboard on AquaGear.com and start streamlining your stroke today!
