How do you find the sizing? Being here in Barbados i can only try out the foot pockets for Beuchat Mundials so ordering fins online is a stab in the dark to some extent. I have heard the Gara's are very similar to the Beuchats in terms of sizing, how do the Mako's size up? I am very tempted for the fiberglass Mako's or even the plastic competition ones.

They do have some size guide on this page but i dont wear neoprene socks and am a size 9, i can only assume i should go for 8-9
