Instruction guide / Security
The Mermaid Tail is not a swimming aid, it is a sports device.
Prerequisite is safe swimming without aids.
4) The monofin is sitting properly when the neoprene foot straps are over the ankle. See adjacent picture for a better orientation. The foot straps should fit like a well-fitting garter at the ankle. Please remember not to pull or tear on the neoprene foot straps, always open with two fingers below the seam to enter.
7) Now, to put on the mermaid tail, lie down on your back with your legs bent, raise your buttocks and pull up the tail. Position yourself in such a way that you lie with the monofin and also with the body on a non-slip surface to avoid slipping. Be careful not to bump your head.
8) Sit up again and turn the mermaid tail to the water. Now let yourself be carefully slipped into the water - someone can gladly help you with this. Be careful not to touch hard surfaces, as contact with the bottom and the edge of the pool can cause damage on the tail and fin.
Use an MJSS mat to protect against hard ground.
Tighten your mermaid tail directly on the edge of the pool.
Never get up or jump with the mermaid tail.
Never swim alone with the mermaid tail.
Always keep enough distance to the other bathers with the mermaid tail.
Do not let anyone untrained swim with your mermaid equipment.
Air mattress, car hose or rubber animals offer you no security.
Do not immerse others.
Cool down before you go into the water.
Do not overestimate your strength and your ability.
Watch your surroundings while diving.
Do not go into open waters unaccompanied.
In thunderstorms swimming is life-threatening. Leave the water immediately, if you feel cold.
Do not bathe where ships and boats go.
Never bathe with a full or empty stomach.
Never call for help if you are not really in danger, but help others if they need help.
"We recommend not to use the mermaid tail in lakes, rivers or in the sea. Currents, cloudy water or driftwood pose a great danger. The entry into the water by the beach, embankments or shallow shores is considerably more difficult. Traces of use caused by non-compliance with our recommendations are excluded from the guarantee."The MJSS Team
