Sea Net Wooden Fins

U.S.A. circa 1947 – ISDHF Collection

The Sea Net Company was located in Los Angeles, California and during the 1940’s and 1950’s was an early manufacturer of free diving and spear fishing equipment. This equipment was in demand as the growing community of post WWII divers went in search of food from the sea, such as abalone, lobster and fish.

The company manufactured spear guns, rubber masks, and fins, but also these very unusual wooden fins. Part of the original company decal can still be seen on the fin blade. ISDHF is searching for any further information on this unusual early American diving equipment.

Acquired from the Sid Macken Collection.
