MAHINA IS ONE OF THE PIONEER'S AND LEADER'S OF THE 'THE RISING SWELL OF MERMAIDING.' HER MOTIVATION COMES FROM HER HEART, VISION, AND IMAGINATION, MANIFESTING INTO EVERYDAY REALITY.
~ In 2004, Mahina Mermaid was one of the first professional mermaids, at a time when there was no such career, Mahina and a friend Hannah Fraser trailblazed this magical dream & career path into reality. Mahina Mermaid is a 'real life' professional mermaid. Sought after for film, TV, advertising campaigns, music videos, and exclusive VIP events.
~ Mahina Mermaid is the creator of the first functional high performance Mermaid Fin since 2006. The MerFin is the first functional rubber mermaid fin of its kind on the market. It was also one of the first eco-friendly/recycled fins produced.Mahina could see years ahead of time (10years in fact) that the Mermaid fin was something on trend that people would end up taking with them to the beach like they do with a surfboard or boogie board, or to the pool instead of a pair of flippers. She strongly envisioned that this could become a sport or lifestyle, one for all ages. Mahina trail blazed her way through many challenges & cliff diving moments in her career to bring her innovative MerFin products to the public. As a result Mahina Mermaid has established itself as one of the pioneer's of the creation and successful growth of ‘Mermaiding’ – a movement that has fast become a global trend throughout the surf, lifestyle, sport and fashion culture.
~ Mahina is a Custodian of the Sea; An Ocean Conservationist with a group she calls The MerPod Ocean Tribe. The MerPod is a place for those who love their beaches & oceans, and feel the desire to be a part of the solution & have the power to make beautiful waves with their hands, hearts and MerFins!

My dream has been to simply share the love of mermaiding with others... So I created the MerFin for you…
To glide through the water like a real mermaid is the closest thing to flying I think I will ever encounter. The sense of freedom, grace, peace, and joy I experience is effortless and astounding… All things that I believe are worth sharing…
Since 2004 it has been my vision & mission that Mermaiding would become a new watersport lifestyle, a recreational activity and a new way of swimming & water play; Water Gliding in the most fun and connected to nature way…. enhancing the value of our living oceans and earth in those who may choose to trade their feet for MerFins, and dare to dive a little deeper into how wonderful our living planet and natural world really is…
The mythology of the mermaid is so ancient and potent- its expression seems timeless and creates such a strong yearning for the reconnection between our human condition, nature and spirituality. This ~ combined with my passion for the ocean and nature, and a longing for a closer connection and respect between the human and natural worlds ~ have been at the heart of all of my adventures
The whole process from imagination into creation I have felt waves rolling from my heart into every MerFin… I have whispered wishes into the tips of every tail; that they may be a beautiful vehicle to bring joy, inspiration, connection and education to Mermaider’s all around the globe.
