Hi there, my name is Tom Fontana, welcome to my site.

PumpupBoats.com is a site I created to help people navigate the world of inflatable boats. You’ll find loads of useful how-to articles, reviews on various products, and lengthy guides on everything that involves inflatable watercraft.


What are my credentials for creating such a site?

Well, I’m NOT a boat salesman, that’s for sure 🙂 Ever since I was 3 years old, water has been a part of my life. I was diagnosed with scoliosis and was forced to swim every day while my body was in growth.

During this time, I fell in love with “water”, which has lasted till this day. I have tried and experienced everything that involves the water:

  • scuba diving
  • surfing
  • kite surfing
  • white water rafting
  • wake boarding
  • water skiing
  • boating

Boating is one of the most enjoyable water activities I have experienced. It gives you the freedom to reach exhilarating speeds, go to places only a few get to visit, snorkel in remote locations, and have fun with my family and friends.

Traditional boating is an expensive hobby that only the privileged get to enjoy.


Modern inflatable boats offer everybody the chance to get out onto the water. They are accessible, inexpensive compared to traditional boats, compact and easy to move from A to B.

Over the years, I have accumulated a lot of experience with inflatable boats. This is the knowledge that I will share with you on PumpedBoats.com.
