SCUBA diving is just one of the many ways you can enjoy the water this summer, and floating the day away on a river or lake is at the top of the list. While acquiring a float can be as easy as purchasing a truck tire inner tube from your local garage, outdoor gear designers are getting pretty clever with their floats and lounges, whether you’re looking to fly solo or gather up all your friends. Here are some of our favorite water lounges from LeisurePro’s awesome selection of summer toys — get yours before they disappear into the heat!
There will be absolutely no shame in your floating game when you’re rocking this inflatable lounger. Its uniquely contoured shape allows for gentle rocking and rolling on the waves without constantly fearing being tipped overboard. The ergonomic design offers the ability to sit up straight, lounge back, or lay out completely to get that all-over tan you’ve been wanting all winter. Although the Rock and Roll will only comfortably hold one adult, we could see this becoming a fun toy for swimming-age kids who like a rambunctious game of King of the Mountain!
For a more inclusive experience, check out this two-person Oasis lounge from Rave Sports. The Oasis is designed to comfortably hold two adults, and is shaped in a way that lets both people to stretch out and enjoy the floating action. Each side has two recessed drink holders, and the mesh bottom lets just enough water in to cool you down under the hot sun. The Oasis can be purchased in multiples and connected together, or to the O-Zone water trampoline for hours of family fun!
And finally, for those days when everybody’s invited to the fun, we have this 4-person float from Sevylor. The simplicity of this lounge is what makes it such a great score: 4 tubes with mesh bottoms arranged in a square pattern so everyone is a part of the group. Four integrated drink holders are placed within easy reach of each tube, and the middle area is a perfect place to put snacks, sunscreen, and personal belongings (but don’t forget the watertight container!). Sevylor’s airtight system guarantees that their float won’t leak, and heavy gauge PVC construction ensures that this float can take whatever summer has in store. It can even be clipped to other Sevylor inflatables for a party float!
