Should all kicking practice be done with swim fins or a kick board?

Kick With and Kick Without

With or without? Practice breaststroke kicks without swim fins, yet both with and without a kick board. Practice the flutter kick and dolphin kick both with and without swim fins, and with and without a kick board. Practice each of these kicks on your stomach and on your back.

Practice kicking on your back with your arms in a streamline position, no kick board. For beginning swimmers learning the backstroke, try holding a kick board across your stomach as you lie on your back and practice flutter kick.
