I am convinced my kids are part fish, they must have gills somewhere, I just haven’t found them. Living on a lake, as soon as the weather gets warm enough to swim, they want to swim all the time. That is not a bad thing and I have to admit I love it too! We had such a mild winter in New York State this year, this past Memorial Day weekend is the only one I can remember (and I spent every summer on this lake since I was 2 weeks old before moving here full-time) where the water was so warm the kids basically swam all day. Now when I say warm, to many of you that are not used to swimming in natural spring fed lakes, you might think I was nuts, but to those of us lake people it was unseasonably warm. I can remember many Memorial Day Weekends where you could not last 5 minutes in the lake without shivering.
My kids were really excited because we were going to try out our new ParadisePad for the first time. A ParadisePad is a foam pad that floats on top of the water and actually lets you feel like you are walking on water. Awesomely fun, my kids played from early afternoon until just about dark when we had to coax them out of the lake. They slept well but were right back at it the next day. I can tell you this pad is going to have quite the workout this summer.
The ParadisePad can take it though, constructed of premium materials this pad has the best rip stop membrane in the industry! The tear resistant membrane is put between the foam layers to prevent tears from happening. ParadisePad uses a denser foam too and that keeps the mat flatter on the water and helps disperse weight to give it a higher buoyancy rating. Their pads are built to last with UV protection with no adhesives. The ParadisePad is built to hold withstand 900-3000 pounds depending on the size. Designed to be flexible and portable the ParadisePad comes with two Velcro straps so you can roll it up and take it with you wherever you go. The ParadisePad is made right here in the USA and comes in 9 color and 3 style options. The pads are available in 2 ply and 3 ply thickness.
We chose the blue and orange, 2 ply, 18 foot Paradise Pad. Our pad was well packaged for delivery and arrived in a large box.
Inside the box the rolled pad was inside a very thick, clear plastic bag and then inside that it was shrink wrapped and had the straps fastened securely. It comes with a 10 foot bungee cord with a clip on each end that hooks to a ring on the mat.
There is a sturdy ring on each side of the mat and you attach the bungee to the ring on the side you will be putting down on the water.
As soon as we had the bungee secure, the kids were off and playing.
You may find some cheap foam pad options but do you really want a pad that may only last a few weeks to months.
