ISLAND BUDDY by Island Hopper

The Island Buddy Water Swim Platform is a super buoyant, ridged, inflatable water platform. This swimming platform can be used in conjunction with your boat and inflated in minutes to make a patio area for sun bathing, swim play, wakeboard and tube launching, or any number of water activities.

The Island Buddy is the perfect portable size at 8’ x 6’ to be used by 4 to 6 people holding over 1000 pounds without worry! Each platform has 11 side-welded stainless steel d-rings to tie off and anchor securely. It also has two large d-rings on the bottom side for permanent anchoring. You can also fit multiple units together to make an extended platform in any number of configurations. On top are 8 web-loops for tying down your ice chests, lounge chairs, paddle boards, and water toys.

Made from commercially rated 1500 denier drop-stitch material and built with heat-welded seams to top boating industry standards. Island Hopper offers customers a commercial industry best 5 year “No Blow Out” limited warranty.
