Towing a tube?
So how do you go abut doing this? Do you inflate the tube when you get out? Pull it behind you from the dock?

check out our show for all your tips, its pretty basic but helpful for the noobs
inflate the tube on the beach, attach the rope to your ski, a tip (as the driver always be awhere of the rope and keep it taught behind you, never run over it or allow your observer to touch it or retrieve whilst you are in motion) this tip will prevent alot of heartache if ever you have to unwind it from your propellor.
tow it at a moderate speed so as it sits up on the plane speeds will vary depending on age and experience of those in the tube. be careful not to wip it around to close to shore and other boat users.

It's easiest to inflate the tube and pull someone from shore. Towing an empty tube may cause it to act as a plow (if it flips or is submerged). If this happens, you'll be either pulling a lot of weight very slowly or the ski will become off-balance and you'll flip. You'll figure it all out with experience.
