Which Towable Water Tube is the right Fit for You and Yours

What type of towable water tube are you looking for? How many people are gonna want to ride this tube? Is it just for one person or is this going to be a family activity? These are things you need to consider when you’re trying to find the right towable water tube for your family. West Marine has a great blog for helping you narrow down your search on what is ideal for you.

Are you looking for something that is for a single person? They are smaller than your average size tube allowing for speed.

How about a 2-3 person rider? Do you have more than one person looking for a ride or maybe needs that partner for some extra encouragement? These water towables are still great and fun, they are a little slower than your one person water tube but still allow for good movement.

How are you going to choose? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with four great Airhead blast water towable tubes to pick from!

Don’t Forget your Tips & Tricks

Making Sure You’re Safe While Having Fun

Having fun is the ultimate goal of your tubing adventure, but having fun means that you are also safe on the water. BoatUs wrote up a great check to list to make sure that when you are speeding through the water you are at our best!

Is the Towable Tube Water Worthy: Before you even think about getting on that water you have to make sure your towable water tubes are inflated! When you blow that tube up make sure there are no wrinkles, no folds, and it doesn’t give under your weight.  

Keep your Distance: You want to make sure that you have a safe enough distance from the water tube and your boat. You definitely don’t want to drive that boat too close to any docks or channel markers. Watch out for shallow waters, you don’t want to get stuck!

Remember the tuber has no control over the steering. It’s all up to the driver on the boat, so steer well for folks riding those towable water tubes!

towable water tubes make boating fun for everyone

Speed: If you’re the driver you might have that twitch in your hand to see what your boat really can do on the waters. Just be careful! When you’re making that turn, that rope holding on to that towable tube is creating a much a longer arch and force. So while you’re going 20 mph towable water tubes are hitting those curves at 40 mph!

Hand Signals: Good communication is key! Try and pick simple hand signals for the driver and tuber. It’s ideal when you want your driver to hit the gas on that boat! Try thumbs up/down for speed; thumbs up for fast, thumbs down to slow down!

And don’t forget when you’re out on that water – wear your life vest!

Get that Boat Engine Started

You’ve got a selection to choose from now. Whether it’s with a few friends or the whole family, everyone can get in on the fun! Get that need for speed fix and enjoying hitting that water on your Airhead Towable water tube. You’ve got a whole summer ahead of you, enjoy it!
