I've never seen those. That looks like a really good way to get hurt though.

The company has recalled all of them seems a few people have died on them.
Not surprising at all. I've been pitched off tubes at a high rate of speed relatively close to the water and skipped like a stone...loosing my trunks and getting all beat to hell...

Gotta love "alcohol sports"

indeed...I'd have been the dumbshit falling off 35 feet up at 35MPH if we'd have had one of these when I was in college. :rotfl:

I have a summer home.... and one of my money blowing buddies brought up two jet skis. One of them a turbo charged, four stroke, yamaha, three seater that was built up at a performance shop. It has been on the radar (not indicated) at 78 mph on a large three seater.

So we get a tube.... and instead of pulling it behind the boat, we do it behind this three seater. This tube is huge.... three people or me on this thing.

I being a smart ass told him... no way you will be able to get me off this thing (famous last words......). So after taunting and betting dinner, I decide to go. My wife is spotting and Wisconsin law says the spotter on a three seater has to sit backwards...

He gets going on the lake and just goes to task.... All I know is that we were at wide open when all of a sudden he cuts the ski hard and rams the throttle. My wife looked over her shoulder and said the ski was showing 67 indicated and I was in front of the ski. I thought I had it.... lost it.... came flying off.... and from what they told me... Is I skipped over the water, because when all the dust settled I was sitting on the sand of the people across from out cottage looking out at the water.

People within 100 yards were stopped just staring at us.... then when I jumped up and threw my hands in the air... the laughter began.

I will never climb on a tube again.
