Other than not looking as esthetically pleasing, nothing happens: the Nekdoodle® is permanently buoyant. We use a closed cell foam, which means that the foam doesn’t absorb any liquid; it won’t mold or mildew. Your Nekdoodle® will function as it was intended.
It will feel more comfortable in the water where the vinyl covering softens and water acts as a lubricant. The Nekdoodle® is designed to be snug, but not constricting so you can swim and kick hands free.
The Nekdoodle® pool float is perfect for swimmers worldwide. It provides a soft cushion and support for your head and neck. Use in water fitness, recreation, relaxation, and aquatic therapy. Its multifunctional appeal as an aerobic kickboard, a swimming pool float, a swim training aid, and a spa pillow makes it popular with all ages. Its vinyl coated foam is not only comfortable but won’t break apart in the pool and clog the filter the way styrofoam floats can.
