Here are some of the best towable tubes!
How Do They Work?
Have you ever stood at the water’s edge with a flat stone in your hand. If you hold the stone just right, with a flick of your wrist you can send that stone skimming across the surface of the water. Well a towable tube works on the same principal but on a much larger scale and with a few more variables thrown into the mix.
You the rider simply sit on or in the tube. The tube itself is inflated, so it’s like a cushion of air on top of the water. A rope attached to the back of the boat is also attached to the front of the tube and it pulls you across the water.
At first the ride is slow due to the friction between the towable tube and the water. At a slow rate of speed quite a bit of the towable tube comes into contact with the water. It is riding deep in the water. As the boat increases speed less and less of the bottom of the tube comes into to contact with the water. The tube starts to rise up and sits just barely on the surface of the water. You are now on a plane. The tube is hydroplaning across the surface of the water. By now the tube is moving much faster and the ride has become extremely fun! You are now skimming across the surface of the water like that stone you threw.
Safety is extremely important. Anytime you are in the water. Always wear a life jacket and obey all local boating laws and regulations. We want everyone to go home, so that they can return to ride again!
