The Finis Luna monofin is coming…
There’s also a really interesting selection of images charting the design process on Andrea Novoa’s site here.
It’s made of silicone, which I can see opening very exciting possibilities for those of us who would love to try making our own tails, but don’t have the artistic talent to sculpt our own flukes. And presumably silicone will stick to silicone…
Finis monofins are really popular bases for silicone tailmaking, so I’m intrigued to see how this one swims. It looks a lot floppier than most monofins, but I think maybe that adds to the mermaid look and feel?
I’ve not managed to find it available for sale this side of the pond yet, though you can buy one from Aquatails but hopefully it won’t be too long before we start to see it appearing in swim & dive shops over here. And if I can get hold of one to try, of course I’ll let you know what it’s like!
With love and narwhals (because underwater unicorns),
