FINIS, a world leader in technical swimming products, announces the addition of two new brand ambassadors, Mermaid Kariel and Hannah Mermaid. Hannah and Kariel are joining the FINIS team to grow brand awareness through their fitness training, natural resource conservation, and underwater photography efforts. Both real-life Mermaids choose the FINIS Competitor Monofin as the blade for each of their elaborate tails.
About Mermaid Kariel:
As a child, Kariel dreamed of being a mermaid. She now lives that dream as Hawaii’s first real life local mermaid! Taking the globe by storm, she showcases her skill at some of Hawaii’s finest resorts and has been featured in National Magazines for her inspirational career as a real life mermaid. Kariel is a pioneer in her line of work and strives to make “mermaiding” a renowned, worldwide sport. She instructs the world’s first mermaid inspired work-out class, Fin-to-Fitness, held at Hawaii’s own Ihillani JW Marriott and spa. This mermaid is swimming the globe with a mission to empower self confidence, so everyone can live their full potential.
Kariel is involved with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and is the author of children’s book “The Brave Mermaid”, which offers a message to help her readers see their full potential and talent, and to use it as strength to better their world.
Finis, Inc is in the process of creating the first teen mermaid monofin, with plans to release the fins this year. Keep an eye out for Mermaid Kariel, featured locally on the premier boxes of these monofins!
Mermaid Kariel is living proof that, with enough heart and dedication, dreams can become reality. Join Kariel and Finis, Inc in making your own mermaid dreams come true.
Founded in 1993 in Northern California, FINIS was started by John Mix and Olympic Gold Medal Swimmer Pablo Morales. The Monofin and the Swimmer’s Snorkel were the first products they developed for the US market; afterwards, they continued to focus on creating training tools for swimmers and coaches worldwide. FINIS products are currently available in over 65 countries and are used by US and International Olympic teams, elite triathletes, and fitness swimmers.
Innovative research and design is FINIS’ highest priority. This dedication has resulted in truly unique products such as: the Swimmer’s Snorkel, which is recognized as the paramount tool to improve a swimmer’s technique, the Neptune MP3 that uses bone conduction technology to transmit music to the
inner ear instead of using ear buds, and the Z2 Zoomers fins, which demonstrate an intimate understanding of swimming musculature, hydrodynamics, and engineering.
