what tube for noob

Postby filthy » Thu Feb 02, 2012 1:22 pm

Hey guys, kinda new to the whole wakeboarding/ tubing thing and loving it, Problem is i bought a cheap basic as tube and yeah love it but want something better, has anyone used one of those ron marks battle chariot things? they look good but not sure, think im tossing up between one of those and the ron marks hell bent, prob use in the salt too so something that goes well in the rough stuff.

Probably too late now, but the battle chariots are good for younger kids, but get quiet boring as they generally stay in the middle of the wake and are very hard to fall off. in my opinion the best tubes are just normal donuts or flat 'discs'

Have to agree, can't go past toe donuts or biscuits. 2 at once.

I've got a three person hotdog which people seem to love. It generally stays in the middle of the wake, but it's good for throwing people off. Had a few injuries though.

yep, two or three up tube battles are the best.
When the lake is trashed from aquabogans pulling laps all day the only solution is a good tube session.
Up at moogerah we would get anywhere up to 4-5 people on three tubes and see who is the last man standing.

As long as you have enough capacity for everyone in the boat and you have a spotter you should be right. Depends how much of a pain they want to be though.

Queensland has no limits on the number of people that can be towed (at least from what I can see on the regulations)

Yes NSW rules say only three people, other states must differ.

South Australia is as follows
" No more than three people, or one device carrying up to three people, may be towed at one time".

Yep NSW is 3, a mate was booked over the break for towing two tubes with two people on each, I believe it was around a $200 fine as well that he was stung with.
