It was hard to fix since i didn’t realize what it was doing until we were far past our boat. I did however swim in once we got close to the boat again. They had one fin (1) that was the size that i needed so I used that on my foot that was worse off. I put a band-aid on it and was good to go. However I did miss out on seeing the sea horse while dealing with this.
