Does anyone have an opinion on the best ringo / towable? Looking for something for two teenagers. Are these things safe?

I have a jobe 2 man ringo the kids and the adults love it
As for it being safe is mainly down to the driver of the boat , always have a spotter and good mirror if possible
Always be aware of obstacles in the water and the length of tow rope
I think most accidents happen when the driver of the boat is trying to get the passengers in the ringo out at high speed
Be safe lots of fun !

We've found the O'Brien screamer far superior to any ringo particularly for teenagers, we've got the one man versions and regularly tow with two small adults. Easier to mount in the water, lot less drag on the boat lot more fun all round. Since we bought it the Ringo sat in the garage gathering dust until I gave it away!
