Never Swim Alone, But With A Sense Of Adventure

Call us nerdy,” writes CEO John Mix. “But we’re obsessed with the fine details of swimming. Our elite team of industrial designers is dedicated to developing the next big thing – but we’re not in this alone.

We collaborate with an extended family of swimmers and coaches around the world to stay at the forefront of swimming technology. If you have a great idea, we invite you to share your thoughts by emailing

Their latest invention is the FINIS Duo Underwater MP3 Player.

The storied sense of adventure and draw to the water is in our blood – our products come to life here, we work here, and most importantly, we live in the heart of the Bay Area,” continued Mix. “We are inspired by the nearby oceans, lunchtime swims and a widespread culture of innovation.”
