Looking to Inner Tube at a local river near Portland? Maybe Clackamas River Tubing , Sandy River Tubing or Wilson River?
Or maybe you are a true river lover and you need an inner tube for THE BIG FLOAT (7/31/11) we also sell life jackets for adults, teens and children for $7. Anyone who is either under 14 or unsure of their swimming skills must wear a life jacket for THE BIG FLOAT.
ALL inner tube proceeds from Popina will go directly to Willamette Riverkeeper !
Look no further than Popina Swimwear to gear you up for all your tubing needs.
Popina has Four options:
The Basic River Rat Model - $15
The next step up would be your River Run. This would be your middle of the road model. The River Run features a backrest and drink holders. $30
Finally got someone close you like to tube with? Why not double up with the River Run II? Features two seats, back rests, drink holders and a generous built in cooler. $56
We also recommend oars with this craft as it is very hard to hand paddle with one hand per couple - Optional Oars $20
How about accessories?
A must for a hot summer day is a floating cooler $20
You MUST have a pump, very bad idea to try to blow one of these baby’s up manually with your mouth. We offer two, an electric model that plugs into your car lighter (pictured with regular plug) $15
Or a manual high output double output manual hand pump for $20
You can pick up an inner tube at one of Popina’s two locations!

Modest Tankini swimsuits by Popina Swimwear are fun, flattering and fashionable. Tankinis are a great alternative to One Piece Bathing Suits if you are looking to try something new. All of Popina’s Tankini styles have “meet and greet” sizing which means the bottom of the Tankini meets the top of the swimsuit bottom for your typical torso. Tankinis are also great if you do have a long torso and would like additional coverage, or if you love two piece suits but just cant bring yourself to wearing a one piece!
Here are some of Popina’s tankini styles:
Gina - great retro styling with wide neck straps, built in shelf bra
Wendy Halter Tankini - less supportive if you need it, but a great classic look if you can pull it off
Olivia-Lynne - features keyhole, built in shelf bra

Vintage Swimwearand Popina Swim go hand and hand. Popina’s designer Pamela Levenson began designing Vintage Bathing Suit styles because she loved the looks of the past but got tired of hunting down old worn swimsuits at the Vintage Swimsuit Store.
The Grace is a new style that Pamela added to the Popina collection this year. This style has been very well received, new fabric options will be available late this year.
Here is the Grace in Black.
Popina also carries a wide selection of Jantzen One Piece Bathing Suits and all are on sale right now for 20% off. You can choose from the Jantzen Vamp Swimsuit in Sea Green, Red, Yellow, Black, Magenta or Java.
