As with any water sport, the
very first thing that you should be concerned about
is safety. Everyone wants to ride again and if you do
not follow some basic safety procedures then someone
might get hurt. Make sure anyone who is riding the towable
is a good swimmer and is wearing a proper life jacket.
Using a towable tube could not be any simpler. You
will need a few basic things.
- A boat towable
- An air pump ( If your
new boat towable is not already inflated )
- A Boat capable of pulling a ski tube
- A ski rope - tow harness
- One lucky person to ride.
Once you have all of the items that you need, you are
ready to rock and roll! As the rider, you have the easy
part. Your job is to hold on and have fun. I think just
about anyone can do this.
Some folks like to start the tube ride in shallow water,others
prefer to take off in the deep, either way the idea
is basically the same. The boat pulls the towable tube
behind it. The tube slides and bounces in the wake.
It is a thrill that everyone should try at least once
in their lifetime.
If you are lucky enough to have a bungee rope for your
tow rope then you are in for one wild ride. This will
make the tube ride totally unique. The boat will take
off and as it goes, the bungee rope stretches like a
giant rubber band. The tube starts to move really slow
and once the bungee rope has stretched to the max, it
recoils and the tube instantly goes full speed across
the top of the water.
These great water toys can be enjoyed by just about
anyone and they make great gifts.
