Roll It, Fold It, Inflate It In Paradise

Published: Tuesday, March 13, 2018

Paradise Pad was founded summers ago when a father and son made the decision to purchase a foam water pad for the family lakehouse. At the time, the only waterpads available would be found online and likely not at your local marinas and dealerships. Along with not being readily available, the prices were unjustifiably high, especially for the cheap designs being produced and sold. There were noticeable flaws that required major fixes that would really make the pad a better product for people to enjoy. These upgrades including things such as using stainless steel instead of cheap plastic for the tether tie-down, enhancing buoyancy by using a tear-resistant membrane in between foam layers, and manufacturing all foam products in the USA.

ParadisePad manufactures America's premium foam waterpads right here in the USA. All five of the foam models (XS-XL) are designed with a rip-prevention membrane widely recognized as the best in class, equipped with a stainless steel tether tie-down (strongest in the industry), and high-density, American-made foam.
