Which towable ski tube is right for me?
This really depends on your rider(s), your boat and personal taste. Let's look at the rider(s) first. Obviously, you'll need to choose a towable ski tube made for the number of riders you have. Don't buy a three rider towable if you have only one rider. Another important consideration is the age of your rider(s). Some ski tubes ride more stable than others. Younger riders may feel less anxious on a more stable ski tube like the World of Watersports Big Bubba Towable Ski Tube or the SportsStuff Speedzone recumbent towable. Older, more daring riders may prefer a wilder ride on the Airhead Hot Shot or one of the WOW Thriller Ski Tubes. Of course the speed of the boat can change the ride of a ski tube too. If you have smaller, younger riders you'll want to slow down for them. Know your rider(s) and the type of ride he and/or she likes.
Personal taste can play a sizable role in your decision as well. There are many towables that provide a similar ride. Graphics, shape and design can play a large role in your decision. There are many choices when selecting a boat towable, all considerations being equal, it just might come down to which one you think looks great behind your boat. All towables can provide years of fun for the right situation, from crazy new designs to the old standby round ski tubes.
When it comes to your boat, think practical. The larger the towable, the more power you will need to pull it and provide a fun ride. You can pull a SportsStuff Big Bertha with a 100 HP motor, but with four adults hanging on, you may have some trouble providing a fun ride and getting them outside the wake. The most important thing to remember is to have fun and be safe!
