Video below if anyone is interested.

Cheers, Si

Great video and what amazing scenery too. I had my first attempt at ringo's this year was great fun. Looked even better with two and what a good recovery one of them made

Here's my vid back in June this year of PeterM, MattH and me awesome fun!

At what age can children start using a ringo and what to look out for WRT injury.

Its the person driving the boat that holds all the power ! Key is to give them(kids) the confidence the ride will be to suit them and allow them to feel confident - they control you by way of hand signals - and a good spotter giving feedback is vital when kids involved .

Likewise if you go over a wave in the boat - the ringo will go over it soon after , if you turn the ringo can run much much faster round a bigger radius turn.

My children were 4 and 6 when they started with them, like has been said its down to the driver. I never go over 15 knots, in a straight line, and always have an adult with them (we have a big ringo - hell raiser, more of a flat disc)
