With summer comes all kind of water activities. But you’re limited by what your environment gives you. Much as you’d like to swing from a long rope and splash into a cool body of water in a hot day, you won’t be able to if this body of water isn’t lined with a bunch of obliging trees. Unless you bring this contraption along. It’s a 13 1/2′ tall Floating Rope Swing that’s made from 28 oz. marine-grade, reinforced PVC. The large horseshoe shaped base is anchored solidly to the lake bottom via three anchor points, and should be able to support swingers up to 250lbs. Maybe even more interestingly, if you fail at life often, there’s a chance you’d have gotten hurt from a regular lakeside rope swing; hitting trees and rocks on your way down has a way of doing that. None of this with the Floating Rope Swing.
Well, one thing will be hurting: your bank account. You can buy yours at Hammacher Schlemmer for a cool $3,800.
