Soooo,
Maybe I'll just repaint my old tail and make an all new silicone/latex/whatever is best tail. The only thing that makes me not want to do that is the whole building a new mono-fin thing. This means borrowing my brothers jig saw and fighting a piece of hard plastic that hates me. Also I love the shape and size on my current tail <Sigh> Even though I'll might end up doing it myself, I would LOVE recommendations from you wonderful mermaids as to from whom I could buy one. Like the best one. Like I can send dimensions of my current fin and they can make it perfect? What do you say guys?
Thanks!
BESOS

Are you possibly talking about the Titania Monofin (http://mernetwork.com/imgs/Titania_Monofin.pdf)? There's a tutorial on it.

No. Not that one... I dreamed it maybe? I thought it was a boy, who sold them......
I know how to make a monofin, but I want someone to do it for me.

Do you mean Ryan Tabata? Here's a thread (http://mernetwork.com/index/showthread.php?1979-Tabatafish-Custom-Monofiin&highlight=tabata) where a member talks about a fin that was made by a person of that name.

Yes! Shy, that's exactly what I was looking for!! Thank you! Alas, now that I look at it, I made up the part where he was selling them :( dang. Guess I'll have to fight the jig saw. Stupid jig saw.

I think most people like the Competitor, if you wanted to buy a mass produced fin. I use a Leaderfin, and there is also Specialfins, if you want to go that route.

Mermaid Victoria (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Mermaid-Victoria-Osborn/156357514441184)has been working on custom monofins for some time, but has never officially declared herself open for business. You could try contacting her and see if she's willing to take a commission!
