Common mistake I'm told is people use ski rope for towing toys. Ski rope generally 75' long. Towing toy rope should be about 50' long. Even at 50' long when you turn if you are doing 20mph the guy on the ringo is doing 40mph. If you use the ski rope 75' then the guy in the ring is doing 60mph! Very dangerous. If you must use your ski rope make sure it is shortened to a sensible length.

Awesome toy - U-Tube

We used the U-Tube, it as worth every penny, very manouverable, steerable by leaning and the riders felt very in control. Superb toy.

Bought it from here on recommendation:-

Superb, major thumbs up all round from those laughing in the boat to those riding it.

The Kite Tube has been recalled by the manufacturer, due to several deaths and scores of injuries. Which, of course, got a bunch of thrill seeking morons to immediately go on-line looking to buy one.
