    praxis has those sheets, though they are pretty pricy to get big sheets. a 50 cm by 50 cm sheet costs 17 euros already.
    it definitely works well for a custom monofin though, and I find that it definitely works better then polyeutherane.it has a bigger push to it

    Hmmm

    Decided to improve my tail!

    Currently adding special waterproof foam that wonít make the tail floaty.

    And well start over with the body :0

    Hey guysss! so these past few weeks I've been working on the tail again! And I made it extended!!!! This was a very tricky thing to do, but it worked out. I used this cool waterproof foam that works really well. And with the scales sewn on, This tail is getting close to being finished!

    very nice, I'm interested in how you made the extended part, I have some ideas floating around my head that will have to wait until I have more money & have sorted out my craft space.

    hope you'll put up a video of you swimming in it when it's done.

    Won't all that foam make your legs float up to the surface unnaturally?

    Honestly I doubt I t I added foam to my extension as well because itís very HEAVY and my calculations were perfect no float no sink. Just flow.
