The Swim Step is a 5'x10' inflatable platform that can be used as a dock and boat extension. It is also a great substitute for swim ladders. The product will retail at $799. We are offering it for $499 on Kickstarter.

The idea for the Swim Step was born out of the demand from our own team's lives. For years we've been avoiding dock and boat ladders by climbing up using a paddle board tethered to a dock instead. The Swim Step performs this task, but much better. It also serves as a 50 square foot platform for deck chairs, lounging, and so much more.

The Swim Step has three handles to help you carry it when inflated, four D-Rings that can be used to tow or to dock it to boats and floating docks. It also comes with two storage straps and a hand pump. 

 

 

 The Company:

Tower is a team of six beach lifestyle enthusiasts. It has been manufacturing inflatable stand up paddle boards for years now. The inflatable SUPs are made from military grade materials like the ones you'll find on the highly regarded Zodiac boats and extreme river rafts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

We have built a prototype and have been putting it to the test. By our calculations, if we get enough orders in, we can get these made by May and send them out soon. But in order to be safe, we have set out a delivery date of July. We have already calculated shipping expenses into our cost, as these are large items.

We are very excited to hear what you have to say about these new products.
