The Lunocet in Action



Filed under: All, Equipment — jome @ 2:15 pm

The SubHuman Project website by Ted Ciamillo has some new videos and updates. Ted has also built him self a “testing lagoon” for testing his inventions instead of taking them to the ocean every time. How many freedivers wouldn’t mind having that? The much discussed “Lunocet” monofin can be seen in action in these videos:

Unfortunately the quality in the lunocet footage is hard to make out due to the murky visibility of the pit, but it demonstrates nicely how the fin behaves in motion.

  1. Would be interesting to have a good finswimmer trying the Lunocet and giving us his opinion…

    The blade seems to be articulated…kind of airplane’s wing with the flaps moving. I wonder how much it weights. Looks quiet thick.

  2. We’ve reviewed the first production model of the lunocet here

  3. According to their website, “on average a Lunocet weighs about 2.5 lbs”.

    What I’d be interested to know, that I’m having trouble finding, is the wingspan of the thing.
