    New Maryland Mermaid here!

    Hey everyone! My name is Jessi, mermaid name Sirena. I am totally new to mermaid community but have loved mermaids for as long as I can remember. I am from Maryland and would love to chat with some other mermaids from the area! I don't own a tail yet, but I am going to work on that right away!

    Can't wait to meet everyone!!

    I actually bought my first fabric tail last week! It was a dark purple Mertailor EcoTail. I absolutely love it! It fits like a dream!! I am already working on a design for a silicone tail that I want to have made. It's going to be a kind of cosmic design and since I'm a Pisces, I'm going to have the constellation put on the tail somewhere.

    Yo if you have an embroidery machine or can hand embroider, here's a really cool Pisces file from one of my favorite sites: http://www.urbanthreads.com/products...ductid=UT14776
    Idk how embroidery would work on a fabric tail (I'm a noob) but it's a cool design.

    Hi! I'm in York COunty PA, but travel to places on the DelMarVa peninsula as often as possible. I have, in fact, amused a few beach goers at Rock Hall MD, and Assateague Island.

    My personal experience and opinion about tails goes thusly (and echoes some of the pros I love):

    Fabric tails look great and are easier to use, get on, get out of, require no mertenders (I put mine on in waves at Rock Hall and in the swash at Assateague island beach), and are easy to repair. Silicone is fabulous and great for pros, but expensive and hard to use and maintain.

    I love the Fin Fun tailskins, cheap and sturdy and amazing variety and gorgeous. They make good enough monofins but the Linden is the same price or cheaper, and a better monofin, speed, power, easy to fit all kinds of feet, and fits in the Fin Fun skins. I also like the Luna and Mahina, though they barely fit my huge feet.

    There seems to be a small pod that swims at Dutch Springs in PA (clear water but cold, it's set up for diving, which is what I did there years ago).

    There are some awesome beach photo ops at Rock Hall MD, (as well as a fun swim in shallow water with nice waves), Turner's Creek Landing MD on the Sassafras River (set out in a kayak, go down river, turn into the tidal creek, play in the tide pools on sand, get pics among the lotus), and Eastern Neck Island National Wildlife Refuge (mouth of the Chester River). All Chesapeake Bay water, that is, not very clear... unless you add a wetsuit to the outfit and go in December.

    I have a facebook page for mermaiding at any level: Gramma Swordwhale's Mermaiding Page

    It's fun, and you don't have to match the stereotypical image, or have a lot of money.

    I'd start with the Linden or Luna (also fits in the Fin Fun, mostly) and a Fin Fun skin.

    Just keep swimming, swimming swimming...
