    I tried to jump out of the water in a 10 meter deep diving tower with a mermaid tail, but unfortunately I failed. The tail is too heavy above the water...

    Challenge accepted. I'm going to jump out of the water in my tail. I almost succeeded once at Weeki Wachee. I didn't have a monofin just two small kiddie fins in my fabric tail and I got all the way up to my ankles out of the water. It was awesome!
    Hugs, fishes, and mermaid kisses!

    That video of Mermaid Aiera is an inspiration for me! Such beauty!

    I'm also going to work on my technique. That monofin jumper was amazing too!

    Mermaid Aiera Is amazing underwater!

    I'd think jumping in a fabric tail would be difficult o_o
    Maybe a silicone one would be less heavy and mroe possible?
    Still, you'd need a huge/stiff fin!

    yep, the Monofin Guy really got me into Mermaiding with his style. He swims like a real dolphin, it's amazing.
    (He's also World Champion , so I won't try to emulate him any time soon...)
    My guess is such a powerful accelerated swim+jump is not possible with the floppy, flimsy fin I have in my tail anyway :P
    Might save for a Finis competitor now.

    Still. I bet while in a tail, this wouldn't be possible.
    AND I yet have to find a pool that's deeper than lousy 7 feet
    (the deeper ones are all under the tower, and I don't think swimming down there would be a bright idea )

    ATTENTION: Please use extreme caution when feeding the mermaid. Failure to do so could result in loss of digits.

    the first video has amazing speed and power. The second is pure grace. Lovely.

    Wow! Mermaid Aiera... she just looks so natural and graceful underwater, like she was born a sea-creature. Her movements seem very otter-like to me - you know, quick and playful and joyous.
