What To Consider When Buying a Towable Tube
Water tubing is a fun and exciting activity the whole family can enjoy. DICK'S Sporting Goods offers everything you need to get started, from a variety of quality tubes to all the towable accessories you need for a safe and fun-filled experience.
Consider a cockpit-style tube for children or inexperienced riders. Cockpit-style or “ride-in” tubes place the rider in a seated position and lend a feeling of security and comfort.
For more adventurous riders, consider a deck-style tube. Deck tubes are flat in shape and allow you to skim over the waves lying face-down. A deck tube also allows for greater maneuverability as you skim over the wake of your towing boat. Due to their tendency to flip, deck tubes are suited for more experienced thrill-seekers who enjoy the challenge of staying on the tube as long as possible.
Also consider the number of riders you are likely to tow at one time. We offer tubes that can support from one to four riders, so find one that is just the right size for your next boating party.
Tips & Expert Advice
When purchasing towable tubes, consider the age and experience levels of your riders. Inexperienced or younger riders may enjoy the stability and security of a cockpit-style or “sit-in” water tube, whereas more adventurous riders will enjoy the challenge of a deck tube.
Check out the types and quality of materials used in tubes you are considering. Heavier-gauge materials will add durability for towables designed for multiple riders, while lighter gauge fabrics may be suitable for single-rider towables. Many towables are covered in polyester or neoprene to add comfort and prevent chafing.
Consider accessories you will need when planning a water tubing excursion. DICK'S Sporting Goods offers a variety of tow ropes for connecting your tube to the boat. Tube ropes should measure no less than 50' and no more than 65' in length, and should be selected based on the number of riders you plan to pull as well as the manufacturer's recommendations. You will also need an air pump, a repair kit and life vests for all participants. DICK'S Sporting Goods offers everything you'll need for a safe and fun experience on the water.
