Really excited. I was approached by the Life Saving Society- the body that regulates all things swimming and pool usage across Canada- to help them with their formal decisions on mermaid tails and monofin use. Up until now, they have not made a statement officially as they have been trying to gather information. They are going to meet with me, we're going to teach them about the fins, they're going to check out our study at the aquatron, and observe our mermaid school (woo, pressure). I am happy for the chance to advocate for the other side of things and help them come to a decision with safety in mind. Fins crossed. This could help turn the tides of monofin and mermaid bans!
