On this particular swim I asked Mermaid Bjossa to help me with my figure 8 flips (something I've been struggling a bit with recently). Without a doubt, Mermaid Bjossa does the most appealing figure 8 flips and so I was really excited when she agreed to help a fish out!
Mermaid figure 8 flips with a surface are hard to do! Mermaid Bjossa gives me some serious pointers and helps me get back on track! 💖
I feel so blessed to have such a supportive fish to swim with! She never makes me feel badly when my physical limitations get in the way and any time I have a breakthrough with something (even something as small as touching the bottom of the pool) she cheers me on and it makes all the difference! 💖
I'm very excited for our next swim session to see what other new moves we can come up with and to see if I can finally nail an EPIC figure 8 flip!
Overall I highly recommend this fin for practice swims as it makes the whole experience far simpler as I'm not having to haul a giant tail bag with a huge monofin in it.
Do you have a preferred monofin for practice swims? Leave me a comment and let me know!

We can get so caught up in the material excitement (which can be lots of fun, I'm not going to lie and say it isn't) that we forget there's more to it.
In this video I opted to wear leggings because TBH I am very nervous to swim in such deep water. It only occurred to me once I was underwater that this was one of the most magical swims I've had in a while!
I felt secure in knowing that my legs were free if I needed to escape my monofin quickly, and that helped ease my nerves in the deep water which allowed me to really have some fun!
It also brought me back to my early days when I used to hit the pool with nothing but my swimsuit and goggles. Back then I was focused more on how it felt to be underwater vs what I looked like.
This is something I hope to explore more here on the blog. 💖
All that said, what are your thoughts? Do you have a go-to comfortable look that you like to swim with as a mer? Leave me a comment and let me know!
