No, WondaWedge isn’t some Bajan hussie I found on the beach. It’s a blow-up thingy that was perfect for us on the beach. Since I had packed a suitcase with three sets of swim fins, three masks and snorkels, we ended up with a suitcase full of beach gear. My kinda travel.
One suitcase with beach gear and one suitcase with beachwear.
Here’s the WondaWedge in action:
Turns out we didn’t have any pix of us using the WondaWedge, so I snared these from the website. It’s a made of something they call “flocked PVC.” It’s kind of like a plastic suede.
It’s not like lying on a air mattress all day and then having to peel the thing off your body because you’re stuck to it. It’s comfortable even without tossing a beach towel over it. And it stayed fairly cool too.
I didn’t keel over from inflating the WondaWedge either. It only took me a minute or so to blow it up and the valve held the pressure. The sand brushed off easily and we packed it home.
It’s nice to find a product that actually performs up to the standards they promise. It’s not cheap at $24 + shipping, but I can see this thingy lasting a long time. Here are some of the suggestions they have for outdoor use:
Beach lounger – sand won’t stick to or penetrate
Fishing back support – for more relaxing fishing
Camping lounger – pack it along with your tent
RV accessory – deflates for compact storage
Outdoor concert seating – easy to carry, doesn’t tear up the turf
Picnic seating – better than just a blanket
Boating lounger – recline in style on your pontoon or sailboat
Soccer sideline seating – more comfortable than bleachers or a blanket
Outdoor plays/movies – lean back and enjoy the show!
Stargazing – the reclining position is perfect for watching the night sky
Poolside lounger – less expensive than a chaise lounge
