A Truly NEW and UNIQUE Water Experience
A Truly NEW and UNIQUE Water Experience

 

 

Airtime Watertime® Floater™ is the perfect wetsuit with total comfort for the youngest to the oldest water enthusiast. Some of the new and unique features are: 

  • Helps you swim faster and farther with less effort
  • Gives you total freedom of movement
  • Makes treading and floating on water easier
  • Perfect for aqua therapy, water rescue, or any water recreation ​
  • Protects the reefs by floating above them, instead of stepping on them
  • A one-of-a-kind wetsuit flotation device
  • Could be used as a PFD* (*pending coast guard approval)

Whether snorkeling in an exotic ocean paradise… surfing with the added padding and float … exploring mountain lakes and rivers… playing in the pool, children and their parents have added security and confidence … stand-up paddle boarding, jet-skiing, kayaking, canoeing, or windsurfing … lazily floating in a pool at a resort or on a cruise ship… using the float suit as an aid for rehabilitation and recovery… or working in water rescue...

The possibilities are endless.

Lifeguards and Water Rescue 

Airtime Watertime, Inc® is working with a select group of Lifeguards/Search and Rescue teams all around the country to develop the next generation of rescue tools. Currently our suits range from 3mm spring suit (for tropical applications) all the way up to 7mm full suit (for 32+ degree water). Research and development teams are testing suits using jet-skis and jumping out of helicopters to simulate rescue operations. We are also developing communication systems that easily attach to the suit.

What started out as a swim aid with added buoyancy to help navigate in large waves while surfing has morphed into a suit that can be worn by anyone in any type of conditions. Now, whether you are on a paddle-board, jet-ski, or on a boat on a cruise, this is the perfect tool to accompany you on your journey. Here it is: the Airtime Watertime® Floater™.  

Its flotation ability helps reduce environmental impact. Now people ‘float’ above reefs instead of walking on them and destroying the delicate ecosystem.

Another use is water therapy. The patented flotation suit supports people with disabilities participating in water activities that were once off-limits—now everyone can explore a water environment and gain self-confidence.

The flotation suit has saved lives during water rescues, helping lifeguards reach their victims faster and aiding them both to stay afloat with the added buoyancy.

  

We are raising money to help our company grow into full-scale production. We currently have patents that cover all aspects of our product and are in the process of getting coastguard approval. 

 

 

Risks and challenges

We have done our best and will continue to do so to keep everything on track in regards to our product development and our customers best interest. Sometimes the unexpected does occur. Our biggest risk is shipping and the logistics that accompany it. Shipping worldwide has its challenges. We are working to make this as seamless as possible although we might face unexpected delays.

We will do everything we can to make sure your orders are shipped on time and will provide updates in the event that there are any changes.

Thank you for your support!
