This sunday is quite the exciting day indeed. The popular mermaid school from Montreal Aquasirene is now opening it’s new location in Toronto on Queen St!
As an employee for their new division, I thought I would share the news since it’s a unique event and opportunity to not only get in shape by swimming in a monofin, but also fulfilling your dreams of becoming a mermaid for a day (maybe longer if you take a tail home :P)
We all know how expensive silicone, latex, even fabric tails can cost online, so it’s a great place to start and get used to the idea of swimming in a tail before you make the commitment of going custom.
Personally, as someone that’s swam in both fabric tails and silicone, I can tell you that you want..nay, NEED to start off with a lighter material in the beginning, especially if you are not a trained swimmer. Silicone in itself is extremely heavy, and then you have the additional weight of the monofin. At least with the fabric tails the weight is only felt around and on the feet.
Here’s some more super adorable photos of merbaes at the Montreal academy:
So if you’re in Toronto make sure you check out the new mermaid school at the Jimmie Simpson Pool 😉 XOX
