Thank you for purchasing your WavePad. Please read and understand all of the information contained in this Owner’s Manual before using your WavePad Product.
General Description of Use and Placement
Your WavePad is designed for use in open bodies of water that are at least 8 feet deep. It is intended for non-commercial recreational use and, with proper supervision. Common sense should dictate how many people can simultaneously play on the WavePad such that a participant’s safety is never compromised.
Please choose a location for your WavePad that is in sufficiently deep water and free of obstructions above and below the water surface. The WavePad Personal Size Raft, The WavePad Pong Pad, The WavePad Kid Size Push Board, and the WavePad Water Noodle are the only WavePad Products to be used in a swimming pool. Position your WavePad at safe distance from any hard surface or object that someone might strike if they were to fall off the WavePad.
The WavePad is designed for stable, anchored flotation. It is not designed as a toy that is towed behind a boat or any other water craft. Common sense also dictates that you not place your WavePad in areas that are subject to boat and other water craft traffic.
Once you find the ideal, safe location to place your WavePad, attach the tether line directly to your own mooring or anchor. When tying up any WavePad raft there needs to be looseness on the rope or line. Not following these instructions, may cause damage to your WavePad and is not covered under warranty. If you plan to leave the WavePad in the water for an extended period of time, we highly recommend attaching a highly-visible buoy to the WavePad.
Care and Maintenance
Unlike most water toys, your WavePad requires minimal care or maintenance.
It is easy to clean any foreign objects off of the WavePad during the season. Simply turn the WavePad over in the water and use a sponge to wipe off any dirt or foreign materials.
At the end of the season, remove your WavePad from the water. To clean the WavePad, simply wipe it off with a sponge and rinse it with clean water before you store it for the off-season. Let your WavePad dry completely before you roll it up. When rolling your WavePad up, roll it with the blue side (top side) of the raft facing out.
Before you store it, place the WavePad on its end for a few hours so that any remaining water can drain away.
