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!
