WATCH THEM BOUNCE
Throw the ball so it hits the water surface at an angle in between you and a friend - like how you skip a stone - but throw overhand.
Don't throw straight down. They do not bounce like regular balls. :)
The foam line of water bouncing balls are best for the pool, because they have a moderate bounce distance. They bounce high, but are better suited for close range play. Still pack them for the beach though!
The gel Waboba balls bounce farther, which is why they are better for the ocean or lake, not pools.
Squeeze your ball
The Tropical Kahuna absorbs water. The heavier it is, the higher it bounces. Squeeze it after use to allow it to dry properly!
