Our FIRST floats!!!

While we are putting the finishing touches on our website, we are already gearing up for spring in our very first shipment of floats from partyfloats.com!

The WOW pump we ordered worked perfectly, blowing up these full sized rafts in a matter of minutes.  I was really pleasantly surprised how fast it all worked out, now Im not so afraid of it taking forever in the future.  I am blowing up several full sized floats each time I go out.

I had a converter and I was planning on pumping it up with my cigarette lighter, but it didn’t seems to be converting enough power and the pump strength was pathetic.  We got all kinds of bonus goodies with the floats:  Sunscreen bottle flasks and individual drink floaties.

We ended up using the plug on a nearby patio, thank goodness!  It was going to be a lot of work to take the floats to a gas station and there were no outlets at the park restrooms- barbaric.  It went quick and easy from there.  we were just a short walk to the bay!

Everyone in the neighborhood was interested in our floats, it certainly does make a scene on the beach.

I loved my floating cooler!  We had four coolers of much needed space out there!  but we used one for dry storage- keys and phones and shirts.  We mistakenly used the one on the raft.  People were climbing over it to get in and broke the sealer and it didn’t remain dry for long…..bummer.  Good thing my friend was smart enough to put her phone in a plastic baggie:)  So I decided next time all the beer is going on the raft and the floating cooler will be our dry storage:) until I get some other kind of container…..The little disk on the left is one of the cup holders.

More on this fantastic day later.  I hope this information helps you all on your future floating endeavors!.

Happy Floating!

Floatopia Santa Barbara

floa_topia-SB
Floatopia fun originated in 2003 in Santa Barbara, California. The scantily clad college stugents came out in the thousands with floats of all sizes. The attendance was relatively low until 2008 with 100 attendees, then 12,000 in 2009! Blowing away any Floatopia we had here on Mission bay. 2010 and 2011 the beaches were shut down by police on those weekends because of citations, pollution, and injuries.

They always know how to stop a good time. It should be survival of the fittest, let the stupid people knock themselves off:) But alas, we will continue to concoct ways to congregate. Its still always a good idea to get a group of friends together for a private floatopia!

Cyber MOnday

Cyber Monday is a growing phenomenon. Sales grew 108% to the tune of $2.29 BILLION on Monday alone! And we all know that black Friday and cyber Monday are a week-long ordeal. The appeal of shopping from home, passing on the crowds and parking, and trolling from store to store is irresistible. 17% of the sales were made from MOBILE DEVICES. I find internet surfing on my phone frustrating, but I do make a lot of hand-held Groupon purchases…..
Between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday, shoppers who clicked directly from social networks to retailer web sites spent $148 million online alone!

We are in the future ladies and gentleman! Now, go get you a Christmas FLOAT for a loved one and wait for summer to disconnect and get outside at partyfloats.com
