Raft-Up Round-Up: Hangout Configurations
Here’s a riddle for you: What has one name, eight products, and an infinite number of configurations? Answer: the all-new Hangout Suite.
With eight products, this flotilla of fun is practically guaranteed to take your summer (and all future summers) to the next level.
And the best part? Each member of the Hangout Suite is a bona fide socialite. The Hangout 240 loves hooking up with the Hangout 120; the Hangout FLOATube is best friends with the Hangout Bar; the Hangout Couch [Port] and Hangout Couch [Starboard] are long-lost fraternal twins.
In other words, the Hangout Suite has virtually infinite possibilities for configurations, especially when you pair multiple products together. This makes them extremely versatile and shareable. So, you can snag a few for you, convince your friends to grab some others, then have some truly epic raft-ups all summer long that will be the envy of every lake, river, and inlet around.
Of course, in a world of infinite possibilities, sometimes it helps to have a little finite guidance. So, here’s a rundown of some of our favorite Hangout Suite configurations.
infinite possibilities for configurations, especially when you pair multiple products together
For the iconic config that started it all, combine the Hangout 240, the Hangout 120, and the Hangout Bar into a round-table fit for a king. The Hangout 240 is the Big Kahuna of the Hangout Suite, coming in at 10-feet in circumference with the ability to hold up to 900lbs. The Hangout 120 is half the size but equal the fun and fits like an ASMR-inducing puzzle piece with the 240. Finally, plop a Hangout Bar (with a KULA cooler) in the hollowed out middle of these two, and you’re in business. Because, you know, as BOTE CEO Corey Cooper says, “If you’re gonna be out on the water partying, you’re gonna need a cooler.”
The Hangout 360 can also be achieved with 3 Hangout 120s and a Hangout Bar. Same destination, different journey. We’ve dubbed this configuration the Hangout 360 Trio with Bar.
And if you want to replace the Bar with the ability to put your legs in the water, easy—simply remove the Hangout Bar from the middle and now you have your very own personalized swimming hole with easy access to jump in and cool off.
Hangout Lounge Bar
The Hangout Lounge Bar configuration is like a pinwheel of relaxation. With the Hangout Bar situated as the centerpiece and three Hangout Lounges branching off from its KULA-filled nucleus, this setup is great for keeping drinks close by and keeping conversations flowing all day long. Each Hangout Lounge offers a removable and adjustable (and reclinable!) seatback that allows you to treat it like a lounge chair on the water. Don’t have 3 Hangout Lounges? Don’t have a worry; the Hangout Lounge Bar configuration works just as well with two Lounges or even one. So, sit back, relax, and have some fun.
The Hangout Quad configuration is proof that the best things in life come in fours. (They say that, right?) With this “open floor plan” on the water, you can create your very own faux-pool area in any body of water by combining 4 Hangout Couches. And you’ve got a couple of different options: To make a square pool, attach four of the same couch (Port or Starboard) together. To make a rectangular pool, use two of each (Port and Starboard). This makeshift “pool” lets everyone chat whether they want to be lounging on the couch or floating on a Hangout Chair in the water.
Hangout Float Bar
Your river float trip called; it wants its fun back. If you’re like us, you likely agree that those tar-black innertubes of yesteryear don’t really cut it anymore. They’re sticky, hot, and severely lacking in the cup holder department, the works. That’s why we created the Hangout FLOATube—a sleek, stylish, functional, and downright innovative reimagining of the outdated river float inner tube. We’re talking: BVA padding for your back, a MAGNEPOD™ attachment point for your drink, PRV – pressure relief valve – so your tube never over-pressurizes, and mesh netting underneath, so you stay comfortable and supported.
And yep—you guessed it—the Hangout FLOATube also comes fully loaded with more attachment points than you can shake a MAGNETumbler at. Latch-up to your friends or to the Hangout Bar (or, better yet, both!) to create the ultimate Hangout Float Bar. One tube, two tubes, three tubes, pick your poison. The Hangout Float Bar configuration is the best way there is to go downriver.
Get creative! These products were designed to fit together like exponential puzzle pieces. The only limits are your imagination. So, go ahead: build your very own floating city. Tag @boteboards on Instagram for a chance to be featured.
