SAFETY comes FIRST.
Then comes the FUN.
These Guidelines are designed to keep you and the other safe while having fun.
1. SUPERVISE : Adult supervise is always required.
2. STAY SAFE : Know your swim limits and stay within it.
3. BREATH : Remember to take plenty of breaths between swimming underwater.
Our tails have a breathable fabric & an opening at the bottom or on the right side that makes them safer in the water by not trapping any air.
The comfortable fin makes mermaid swimming a joyful activity. The high ankle socks are great for "quick release" as well as full support around the ankles. The insert inside the fin sleeve is virtually indestructible and engineered for safety and comfort. Our Mermaid swimwear tails and fins are sold worldwide. Please take the time to read and learn the rules!
Ensure the Fin socks are pulled up and the fit is correct.
No jumping on land, stairs or other mermaids!
If you need a "quick release" from the Fin simply remove one foot from the sock and then the other. (A bit like taking your trainers of without using your hands). Practice the move in the water until you master it. Remember, practice makes perfect mermaids. Once you can do this and your fabric tail is on just wriggle out of your tail to become a human again.
Do not drag or bash the Fin/tail against the pool edges or base, excessive rubbing can cause damage.
Your swimming speed will increase with the Fin, so ensure that you understand the water space around you.
