Every week, someone will walk into our Beach Toyz store, unhappy with the performance of the inflatable SUP they bought from the big chains.

Beach Toyz reviews Water Mats | Floating Mats | Lily Pads Posted on 27 Mar 23:35 , 3 comments

Floating Mats, sometimes called Water Mats, have been the most sought-after Beach, Cottage and Pool toy for years. You can use them to lounge, as an exercise or play surface for the kids, or as a floating dock. They're great because unlike inflatables, they can't sink, even if they're punctured. While there are some differences between brands, each of these products work on the same principle. They use a marine grade polyethylene 'closed-cell' foam that is durable, has high buoyancy, and won't absorb water.

We compare the Aqua Lily Pad, Floater Mat, and Runway - floating water mats.
