MER'FIN SAFETY

At Mahina Mermaid all our products are designed with safety as our utmost priority. This is reflected in our product design, product education & safety record.



Why Mahina MerFins are the safest option when it comes to a mermaid swimming experience

 

01

EASY AND FAST FOOT RELEASE

With the simplest flick of the ankle strap, the whole mermaid fin is easily released from the feet & the user is free to engage both legs when needed.

02

NEUTRALLY BUOYANT & SUPER LIGHT MONO FINS

The Mahina MerFin is a NEUTRALLY BUOYANT MONOFIN. The MerFin is weightless & feels like part of the body when in the water. The Lil MerFin is a super light MerFin - weighing only 0.53kg out of the water. When in water no weight at all is felt on the feet. Drainage holes on the backside of all of our MerFins allow for effective water flow.

03

MER'LEGS SWIM TIGHTS

Allow your child to complete the whole ‘mermaid look’ without any risk of binding children’s legs together up to the waist.  Once the mermaid fin is easily slipped off the feet, the MerLeg swim tights allow the user to swim unimpeded with both legs free and provides a fun and safe mermaiding experience. 

At Mahina Mermaid we DO NOT believe in nor recommend the risk of binding children’s legs up to the waist within a full-length mermaid tail costume.
