Advice for using your Ocea mermaid tail
Learn how to swim with a mermaid tail!
Swimming like a mermaid is awesome and fun! Since you were born with legs, you will have to learn the basic swimming technique: The dolphin kick! Here is a great Youtube video that will help you learn the way mermaids swim so gracefully in the water. Master the dolphin kick and you will make the world your oyster.
Safe merpeople will practice the technique without the mermaid tail first. Make sure to show your parents how you mastered the dolphin kick so they can decide if you’re ready to jump in the water with the mermaid tail.
It is extremely important that you never swim with your mermaid tail without an adult supervising you!
As you get more experience swimming with the Ocea mermaid tail, there will be many awesome tricks that you will be able to do. Make sure to have your parents share them with all your friends on Instagram or Facebook using the #ocea hashtag.
How to put on the tail
Ask your favourite merfriend to adjust the straps of the neoprene feet pocket. Make yourself comfortable, make sure the pocket is not too tight. However, remember that to help you swim, the pocket needs to hold your feet firmly against the monofin.
Remove the monofin from your feet and unzip the bottom zipper on the Mertail skin. Insert one edge of the monofin in the opening and make sure to completely insert the monofin before zipping it up.
Sit on a beach towel close to where you wish to enter the water. Pull down the skin so you can see the feet pocket on the monofin. Insert your feet. Gently pull back the skin onto your legs. Lie on your back and pull the skin all the way up to your navel.
Make sure you never hop around with your mermaid tail on. It could be very dangerous and cause damage to your tail! And, always have an adult supervise you when you are in the water.
