i REALLY want one, just with the purpose of freaking people out on the beach.
just imagine the fun you can have with one of those! you could even pretend you didn't understand what people said, and be all little mermaid-ish.

I wonder if it would make swimming easier!

I would've been all over this as the The Little Mermaid-obsessed preteen I was!

Definitely not, swimming with knees and feet together is not something the human body was meant to do!

If I had several hundred dollars to waste (which I don't) I'd totally buy one of those and hang out at the pool.

A $2500 mermaid tail? For that kind of money, I'd better turn into a freaking Ariel (edit: I DO want one, but I am astounded at the prices. I will knit my own.)

Edit2: Where are the merman tails?

I believe that's who they had in mind with the sparkled spandex, no?

Smoothie, I am so amused at the thought

My daughter has one of these, but from a different website which is not quite as expensive. they are a p.i.t.a. to lug to and fro swimming spots, but a real conversation starter, to be sure. Makes my core hurt to watch her swim in in,looks very tough. I think hers cam from mermagica.com, where there are, yes, merman tails as well!

Butterfly hater!

Doing butterfly with fins is kinda fun, so I imagine it might IF designed like swim fins.

(I prefer breast stroke and froggy kick so I dunno, but I do like to pull out butterfly to be impressive on occasion)

Same tails! Just put in the appropriate merman measurements.

Here's a picture from the "Realistic Mermaid Tail" page:

For a merman those look really uncomfortable. Perhaps they should add a cod-piece

I like how she's swimming with controlled sea creatures on leashes that are clearly visible in the video.

why do they do it in the olympics, then?

and that creature is a manatee. (aka a true mermaid. not like those imposter mermaids.) i'm assuming the beacon is attached for tracking purposes. (or to alert speedboats, possibly? manatees are notoriously susceptible to being hit by speedboats.)

The manatee is O.G. He'd be schooling the mermaids if it weren't for the beacon. Happy to hear it might be for alerting speedboats. I thought it was just another control mechanism for the video.

Looking at a video, they only do it for the first second right after they dive in. Which does surprise me but I still hold my opinion as they promptly switch to regular swimming once they've gained propulsion. I bet it'd be really hard for a non-athlete to swim like that though. Hurts my stomach muscles thinking about it!

i think they might do it right after they turn around too. (my assumption is that it might be more effective while completely underwater, because they switch to regular once they reach the surface.)
