Show me your pool float and I’ll tell you who you are
In recent days, Switzerland has been flooded with pool floats and inflatable boats. No river, no lake and no pond was safe from them – whole caravans of pool float owners were seen floating through the towns and villages of Switzerland. Who are these people?
The extroverted eccentrics
Big, bigger, my ego. I want the world to know who I am and what I have. All eyes on me – that’s what I like. Why would I get a small pool float if I can have a giant, floating flamingo party island? It's for four people, but I need all the space for myself.
The athletic pragmatists
I’m only prepared to spend money on a «pool float» if it’s versatile. That’s why an inflatable boat is my perfect choice. Who wants to be carried by the water all the time when you could be paddling and getting a free workout? Plus, this boat also has two holders for my fishing rods. Perfect!
The sharing friends
Sharing is caring and I love floating down a river with my friends. It’s like in the pub – but on the water. What’s more relaxing and fun than spending a summer day on this floating island for four people? The inflatable backrest makes sure you can relax while the cup holders and the two integrated cooling pockets provide ultimate comfort."
The greedy egoists
Sharing is for losers. I'm my own boss. I'll decide where and how fast to travel. Sharing my boat? Never. But a plain inflatable mattress isn’t good enough for me. It has to be something cheeky and fancy. A doughnut with a bite? Exactly my kind of humour.
The thirsty voyagers
Whether I’m on this inflatable bar or swimming alongside it – as long as I have a cool beer water at hand, I’m happy.
The loved-up couples
We always appear as a pair – hand in hand, arm in arm, head to head. We want everyone to see us when we float down the river on our romantic pool float together. Of course we share a kiss here and there, no need to make allowances for anyone. The world revolves around us anyway.
The relaxed foodies
Our summer soundtrack is playing on the integrated sound system, our steaks are sizzling on the kettle grill in the middle and our cool refreshments are in our hands – we’re chilling out and enjoying our lives to the fullest. Why worry about yesterday or tomorrow – you only live once.
I don't get why inflatable boats and pool floats are such a hype. Why spend money on something you only use twice a year? I’d rather grab my towel and find a nice spot to read a book and work on my tan. Floating down the river? Not my cup of tea.
