My hobby is basically wearing a monofin (like flippers but one big fin) and a tail skin that makes it look like I have a mermaid tail. I have been swimming since I was 6 months old and was so excited when i got my first tail when I was 10. Now i’m 16 and still do it but I feel so embarrassed when I go to the lake because i feel like i’m a bit old to be playing mermaids. My sister and my friends who had one have all grown out of it and don’t do it anymore. It’s really fun and a good workout but i’m just so nervous people i know will see me and judge me or think i’m wired:( Am I weird for still doing this at 16 and what should i do to feel better? (I added an picture of my swimming in my monofin)

thank you for all the nice comments. I still feel a little scared of people thinking i’m weird but life is short and i should just do whatever. Thanks!
