Got the alligator, or shark as it was.. Good fun, but prolly a little too tame for you.. I managed to tow with the two girls, and some Irish hitchiker, at Priory Bay last year, with no real problem..

We also have a Jobe Tribal, which can go a little faster.. (As Martin found out.. )

Taking the shark to France.. And your more than welcome to try either out anytime..

So perhaps the Jobe Lighning which I missed off first time round would be better?
Hope you ditched the hitchhiker good and proper I expect the corks on his hat might have kept him afloat

The Lightening looks like last years Tribal.. Gonna have to trade my Tribal in, don't want people thinking I can only afford last years stuff..

We bought the Tribal thinking it might be easy for the girls to clamber onto, rather than the Shark..

How about this

Least it would match the Rib , apparently it is designed to float around on in the waves/water.

I bought the Tribal - chariot style with open back. Easy to haul yourself back onto & can use it 2 up. Stable & you can steer it to some degree. Good fun.

I have 3 kids - 5 year old girl, 8 year old boy and 14 year old boy. Which do you think would be the best toy for them. The croc or a big ringo type thing.

I would have thought that with them being so young, they would want to stay in the toob, so anything flat and with higher sides could be the way to go. we got the 3 man jet ski style because of our 8 year old. She cant stand water on her face! Its a lot deeper than most + you can get an adult in it to keep an eye on them. works well.

RIBase
another flying toob but loads cheaper!


I just had a thought. Would these flying toys work at all without a ski tower to tow from? I have my doubts.
