Frequently asked questions
We recommend that you measure the waist and length from navel to ankle and then view our size chart here. If you have the tail in the house and it turns out not to be the right size then you can of course exchange it.
The mermaid tails in sizes 8, 10 and 12 can only be used in combination with the small monofin. This is suitable for shoe sizes 31 to 37.
The mermaid tails in size XS and S can only be used in combination with a large monofin. Suitable for shoe sizes 37 to 42.
The large monofin does not fit the tail sizes 8, 10 and 12. And the small monofin is too small for the tail in sizes XS and S.
Pay attention when ordering a complete set that you select the right monofin.
2. How do i use mermaid tail correctly
We recommend swimming with a mermaid tail only when the child is in possession of swimming certificate A & B.
The recommended age is from 7 years. When younger than 7 years they usually lack the necessary strength to get the mermaid’s stroke right.
Swimming with the mermaid’s tail should be supervised by an adult at all times.
You sit down at the edge of the pool, then you first pull the tail over your legs, now your feet stick out at the bottom. Finally, you put on the fin.
It may be difficult to get your feet in the fin the first few times. The fin is made in such a way that it closes well around the ankles, so that it stays in place during swimming. After pulling on and off a couple of times this will be easier.
We have designed our mermaid tails to be open at the bottom, this makes it easy to pull the monofin on the inside of the mermaid tail and pull it out.
The monofin can then be easily removed while swimming should this be necessary. We have discovered that a mermaid tail that is open at the bottom is the best choice for safety and maximum flexibility.
By rubbing the tail against rough or hard surfaces, you can create traces of use (e.g. pilling, sanding spots, hooks and holes). Our tails have extra reinforcement at the tips and an extra shiny layer over the entire tail as standard. This gives your North Mermaid tail extra protection against wear and tear.
After swimming, rinse the tail and fin thoroughly with clean (tap) water to remove residues of chlorine, salt and/or sand. Leave to dry lying down.
Do not store the tail and fin until they are completely dry. If you wish to wash the tail, do this with a hand wash. In the washing machine the Safety Covers on the tail tips can be released.
