When winter descends upon the Eastern Shore, it is a time for locals and visitors to reflect on the past summer- what made it great, what to improve, and also what additions will make the next one even better. Walk on Water as a store is always looking to improve its services as well as products to constantly keep accommodating what our customers want now and in the future. We take notice of every suggestion, with no expectations other than to provide the most complete water-sport store on the east coast. Which is why we want to carry every piece of equipment to make your experience with our shop and on the water the best it can be.
One such addition is the Lily Pad inflatable floating dock. This durable floating platform provides paddlers, boaters, yogis, and swimmers with the most convenient way of getting on the water and staying on it. The possibilities of its uses are endless.
Lets’ face it, not everyone has a dock attached to their waterfront house. Or even a waterfront house! (But that’s a different story) Maybe putting one in is against a zoning code, or the costs are too expensive, or you have no use for a permanent one. Whatever it may be, it doesn’t matter, because now you have the ability to put a temporary dock in place. At a fraction of the cost now you can host a party and have it as a central focus point, use it as a launch spot for kayaks and paddle boards, practice yoga by floating on the water or underneath the sun, or just relax and catch a tan- this dock provides you with the perfect platform to achieve whatever you desire this upcoming summer.
The durable, marine-grade material which can float up to 1,000 lbs, will ensure you are worry-free when it comes to tears or holes, making it safe for kids to play on and in the water. In addition, it comes packaged with a high-speed hand pump and carry bag making for easy inflation and storage for when the season ends. Or, even better, check out our electronic pumps to cut the inflate times in half!
If you’re still not sure whether you need a new floating dock or not, picture this: You and your partner lounging on the dock with the soft waves lapping against the edges, a warm breeze blowing over your faces as you sip your favorite beverage and watch the sun set behind distant trees on a warm summer night. You sigh with content as the bright orange streaks turn to a soft pink and the clouds shimmer away as the stars begin to appear overhead. Your kids climb back onto the platform and become quiet with fatigue from a full day of swimming, paddle boarding, and baking under the hot sun. When its time, everyone climbs off the floating dock and makes their way inside for dinner. But not before you gently lift the Lily Pad from the water and back onto land, choosing to keep it inflated overnight, knowing full-well it will retain its rigidity due to its solid construction. It will wait overnight until you return the next day to celebrate the warm sun on another beautiful summer day.
This is a piece of equipment you need to elevate your enjoyment this upcoming summer season. So be sure to stop by, take a look at the Lily Pad, and enjoy it with friends and family during all the summer days yet to come.
Seaside Boat Show
On February 14th through the 16th, Ocean City will be holding the Seaside Boat Show at the Ocean City Convention Center. Walk on Water will be representing the sport of paddle boarding at the show so be sure to come check out our location! Boating and paddle boarding are a perfect match for the water enthusiast as the ability to explore open areas on a boat are greatly enhanced if you have a SUP on board. Throw an inflatable on deck and traverse uncharted beaches, making your way to private locations where most boats are unable to dock.
We will be showcasing new products, holding conversations with boaters and paddlers alike, and revel in all things water-sport related to get you excited and ready for the upcoming season. So be sure to stop by, check out what we have to offer, and leave with an excited feeling about summer and all the great things that come along with it!
