The idea behind Float Horizen surfaced in 2015. Zane Ritter (owner/a.k.a “Float Guru”) wanted to bring his interests and studies about floating to the mainstream. In 2015, as a busy psychology and biology student at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga he discovered what floating is all about. He found it to be the perfect way to de-stress, meditate, and recover from strenuous exercise.
In the summer of that year, he journeyed to Portland, Oregon to the largest float conference in the world. This enlightening experience gave him greater insight into all of the benefits of floating. He discovered that there were lots of great people, from all walks of life, who are passionate about floating and sharing this unique experience with others.
With the support of his business partners Seth (a.k.a. “The Floating Head”) and Robin (a.k.a. “Float Enthusiast”), Zane is striving to create awareness and expand the floating community in his hometown, Nashville, TN.
