Default Lily Pad Aqua mat...Anyone a distributor or have experience?

Instead of the beach, this looks like it would be fun to raft up next to offshore where the water is prettier by me.

Anyone have any experience or better yet a dealer of these? There are a few brands out there, Lily Pad is just one of them.

Used to work in the watersports business when these came out. They are extremely popular on lakes up north. The only defect we saw was delamination if left out in the sun, ect. Sold a ton of them..

This guy said buying one was the best decision of his life.

If that was me, I'd be making some very bad decisions.

My friend has one. It's pretty nice when we're rafting up.

It sure causes some debates between him and his wife when it's time to put it up. Also when he doesn't want to bring the thing and she does.

There is no convenient way to store the thing. Plan on toting around something similar to a roll of carpet.

Main reason I went with an inflatable one instead. Much easier to store but takes more to set up.

My buddy got one for his bday one year. He saw the inflatable one I got. Sold the lily pad and bought the same one I have.

That is the ONLY reason I would pay as much as they charge... if the girls were included.

That's a nice one! Mine pales in comparison but I like how we can link them up together (there are actually two zipped up together in the pic). My brother and a buddy each have one. You should see all the adults trying to run across all three of them before they sink. Kids have no problems.

Picked up one of these because it seemed pretty cool and relatively cheap.
