Experience the Best Floating Water Mats with FloatingMats

Experience the best floating water mats with FloatingMats. Our journey began in 2011 on the serene waters of Grand Lake o’ the Cherokees, nestled in Northeast Oklahoma. The inspiration struck as we observed another group on the lake enjoying a floating water mat. Upon closer inspection, we learned it was from a company no longer in business, priced at a staggering $2,500, and constructed with subpar materials.

Recognizing the potential for improvement, we were driven by the belief that this fantastic product could be more affordable and better crafted. Determined to bring this vision to life, I dedicated the summer to contemplating enhancing this aquatic experience.

Fate played its part when, at an event, I stumbled upon rolls of foam reminiscent of what I had seen that summer. Eager to bring the idea to fruition, I sourced enough foam to create the first two prototypes of what would eventually evolve into FloatingMats in my garage.

Addressing a crucial component, the grommet, was the next challenge. Metal grommets, prevalent in most water mats, were unsuitable due to potential injuries and damage to boat gel coats. Hence, I spent the fall and winter crafting our original grommets using plastic irrigation pipe, a rubber drain tub, and an electrical cap – a combination that proved innovative and effective.

As summer arrived, our mats garnered attention on the lake, with curious boaters inquiring about our creation. The demand even led to requests for custom-made mats, prompting us to realize the business potential.

In 2012, was established, marking the beginning of a venture fueled by passion and innovation. The initial order, hailing from Alabama, was a testament to the growing interest in our products. Over the following year, collaboration with a 3D designer and manufacturer allowed us to refine our grommet into our high-quality, versatile version.

What sets FloatingMats apart is the USA-sourced premium foam, ensuring larger, thicker, and softer mats, as well as our unique grommets. These grommets provide unparalleled flexibility, enabling users to tie up, anchor down, or create water havens.
