Favourite toy for the bairns?

My lads enjoy tubing in a single rider delta wing tube and knee boarding. Another toy is needed for next year...any suggestions for that white knuckle ride?

gotta be either wakeboarding or mono-skiing.
Ringo's and the like are fun as a one off but i get bored of them. Something that you can actually control is way more fun.
There is no way to be a good ''ringo er'', you just hold on. with wakeboarding im improving all the time and progressing through the sport. You get a lot more satisfaction out of it.

Wakeboarding or mono-skiing is definitely the way to go. I have just started to learn to wakeboard, great fun and very satisfying, much more so than the ring. Although it is slightly annoying falling off every 30 seconds in the beginning.

White Knuckle Ride

Hiya Mark,

Let me drive! No new toys required!

Looking at them wakeskate things at the mo - basically a wakeboard without bindings - think we will have to learn to wakeboard properly first tho!

Gawd, I'm looking forward to NEB next year.....
