Hi, I'm Kitty-Madison, aka Kitty Mermaid. No, 'Madison' is not my nickname, but my real one... As a new member on this forum, I'm not new in the world of mermaids. Perhaps some of you know me from another forum, Yahoo Group of Facebook, or my old FreeMerfolk website.

Since 1984 - yes, the movie Splash - I followed my dream. After more than 27 years I'm a professional certificated freediver, and a real mermaid. I only dive with freedive-techniques, I never use scuba.

My first tail was a polyester copy of the famous tail from Splash, but later I desgined neoprene mermaidtails. I Use them for training and low-budget events. But also I have a WetTail from Thom Shouse - now almost 8 years old - which I use for professional performances and photoshoots.

I'm not only a mermaid, I also teach others to dive (not swim!) like a mermaid. Sometimes for only a day, a so called One Day Mermaid Experience , sometimes to become a professional mermaid diver. There is only one mermaid in Holland how did the Mermaid Academy , perhaps you know her: Vicky Mermaid.

The FreeMerfolk website is changed into a new one: www.kitty-madison.nl (http://www.kitty-madison.nl/) The site is in Dutch, using Blogspot, but don't worry: Google can translate it.

I hope that I will find new friends here...

Bubbles from the bottom of the Sea,

XX Kitty-Madison

P.S.: Yes, I know, English is not my best language, but I hope you understand me.
