WATER SHADE LLC and our signature product the WATER SHADE Canopy Float Kit was founded in 2009 after another severe sun burn from hanging out with our friends at the lake - so we started thinking about how to bring shade out onto the water and looked at our pop-up canopy.....  the rest is, as they say, "history".

Founders, Jeff and Tom Downey put their heads together and over the next several years brainstormed, created, tested and brainstormed some more until we came up with the design we felt was the easiest to use and most effective product for bringing shade onto any water.  Our US Patent was issued in 2014 and we began to market and show this awesome product.   

Now we are bringing other products to the market starting with the WATER SHADE Canopy Wind Anchor to help alleviate issues with unexpected winds taking away the canopy.  We have several other items currently in the research and development stage so check back with us for news. 

Thank you for taking the time to learn about us and we hope you  "Do the Cool!" with a NEW WATER SHADE Canopy Float Kit!
