Swim Like A Mermaid

Do you dream of being able to breathe underwater like a real life mermaid? Do you wish you had a tail like Ariel’s and could dive down into the deep blue sea? Well now you can – we’re going to show you how you can learn to swim just like a mermaid and make it look natural, like you belong in the water.

You might have seen videos of real life mermaids who look so elegant gliding through the water. When you have legs like a mere human, it’s not that easy! So here are some steps to transform you from a water baby into a graceful mermaid:

  1. Learn the motions – so try swimming just with your body and arms, keeping your feet together. You can even try a flip if you like.
  2. Now try those swimming techniques with a Monofin or some Flippers on – this will feel a bit different as they will help you glide through the water.
  3. Now it’s time to add the Mermaid Tail ! Moving in these may feel strange at first as your feet will be bound together. When you know you can swim properly as a mermaid, it’s time to try and make it look pretty!

Here’s a video explaining the steps, use it to get ideas for different mermaid movements you can try in the water. As you can see, it’s also a good idea to get friends to help you out!
