IMPORTANT SAFETY FEATURE – The option to sit down on a paddleboard (SUP) can be a big safety feature: Over Memorial Day weekend, a strong Sunday morning breeze kicked up and caused the lake to get small white caps. It was enough to cause an experienced SUP rider (Matt) to begin getting caught in the wave chop, which resulted in the paddleboard catching the edge and tilting over.

“Standing was very difficult in the rough conditions. And riding on my knees (which is quite uncomfortable), was not necessary this time, since I added the Float’n & Boat’n Thang™ ” said Matt of Lake Pleasant.  “It provided me the option to get into a sitting position within a few seconds.   When I first tipped over, (my daughter was not with me at the time), the FloatnThang™ provided immediate flotation and aided in boosting me back onto my board.  The lake can get rough quickly, and attempting to stand can be almost impossible with the nasty chop.  The boosting effect of the FloatnThang was perfect and I had plenty of power to paddle out of the chop. In my experience, trying to sit flat on the board (without the FloatnThang) provided no lower back support, making it harder to paddle due to the discomfort and pain in my lower back.  Thank you for offering such a great device for my paddleboard.  I would recommend anyone who uses a (SUP) Standup Paddleboard to get at least (1) one FloatnThang™”

With the FloatnThang™, you now have the ability to sit down on the device with a  5″- 6″boost, giving the SUP user the benefit of a soft cushion support,  allowing for ease of paddling through the rough chop.

We recommend keeping an extra leash to connect to the FloatnThang™,  keeping it close by for those emergencies and rough water conditions.

Product Purchase and volume discount:   Many people have asked about a multi-pack purchase.   They have found that 1 is just not enough.  They need one for a friend, at least one on hand for a boat bumper and in many cases just to have (1) nearby to hold beverages and other accessories.

Shipping is costly (due to the size of the device).  Volume helps us get the price down (shipping 4 units at once, per case, is almost the same as one). By saving us money, you save!

When Doug Masi, the inventor of "The FloatnThang™", (short name), received an email regarding entering his new invention into the Response Expo held in San Diego, CA, he immediately submitted the details on his brand new invention that has never been on the market before. That was one of the main requirements to be considered for the event. Within a few days, he received confirmation that the Float’n & Boat’n Thang™ was accepted into the UIA (United Inventors Association) pavilion! The pavilion featured over 24 new inventions.

On Wednesday, the inventors were judged and questioned about their inventions. Only 3 winners would be selected to go on live TV (Fox 5 morning show) to present their invention to all the viewers. The Amazing  FloatnThang took one of those honors! Each inventor was given the opportunity to pitch the audience.   “We were told we would have about 30 seconds, which was not that easy”, said Doug Masi. They were tracked by a live timer.  Raoul Martinez (Fox 5 anchor) was very humorous and commented how he loved the name. He pronounced it perfectly!

The FloatnThang makes it easy for users to relax in the water while sitting upright, or floating completely on your back. Equipped with two convenient cup holders, the device can also be used on a paddleboard as a seat and offers a place to hold your beverages. It can also be used as a booster seat in a boat or used as a temporary boat bumper when docking or tying up with other boats. The FloatnThang can be used while paddle-boarding, kayaking, boating, and swimming at the lake or pool. The comfortable cushioned backrest and dual cup holders make it convenient for poolside or beach use.   One of my favorite features is having 2 beverage holders for any location including the poolside lounge chairs, particularly when there is no table nearby.   

The buzz regarding the FloatnThang™ started in early April at the Lake Havasu, AZ boat show.

Our 50 units sold out in under 3 hours. Many customers after understanding the benefits purchase 2 and 4 units at a time. The customers were especially
