If you don
Purdieboots - 18th Jun 14
If you don't want to haul around separate kickboard and pullbuoy, this is a very good, very portable compromise. The rough surface gives you good grip in the water. It is an excellent pullbuoy -- I found it more comfortable than the figure-8-shaped ones -- but harder work as a kickboard because less buoyant and because it's too narrow for you to keep your hands at shoulder width. But very, very convenient if you don't haul around a kit bag.
