La lame (12) comporte une pointe (14) et un chausson (16) à l'opposé de la pointe. Le chausson (16) constitue au moins en partie le logement (22) du pied. La semelle (40), qui forme une pièce distincte de la lame (12), et qui est pourvue d'une structure (38, 108) permettant une fixation amovible avec la lame (12), constitue le fond du logement du pied. La palme de la présente invention permet également le réglage vertical de la hauteur du logement du pied ainsi que le réglage de rigidité de la lame de ladite palme.
