Spanish mermaid academy makes a splash!

Mermaids at siren academy

Mermaids at siren academyMERMAID enthusiasts across the globe are slithering into a ‘monofin’ and taking to the water thanks to an ingenious Spanish mermaid school.

‘Sirens’ opened last year in Tarragona and has lured an incredible 600 people from Britain, the USA and across Europe wanting to learn how to swim like a mermaid.

Women – and the occasional merman – are flipping into a fantasy world with teacher Susana Seuma, 40, who shattered her leg in a 2011 car accident.

Seuma had to quit her job a sales manager and is realising her childhood dream – and many others’ – with the help of a spandex tail and a monofin.

Students at Sirenas Mediterranean Academy swim in a pool for 90 minutes before being unleashed on the Mediterranean.
