inner tube watersports


If you want to try and get a taste for waterskiing or wakeboarding but don’t have the skills, the best way to get started is with the inner tube. Truck tyre inner tubes make for the easiest way to enjoy the thrill of watersport.


A towable inner tube of any size will do the job. They don’t cost much and there isn’t much skill required to have fun on. An inner tube is a great way to get kids into the rush of waterskiing and wakeboarding.

Larger inner tubes are fun for families because one or more people can get in them and be pulled along by your boat. It always pays to take the inner tube for a little test run before anyone gets in it.


You don’t have to settle for a standard vehicle inner tube if you are looking to give everyone a little more fun. The inner tube has been taken to new levels. There are loads of great towable inner tube designs available online from around the world if you can’t find something impressive enough in Australia.

For around a $150, you can get a starter “tube” in your hands from just about anywhere in the world. There’s something irresistible about the fun that can be had on a simple inner tube with handles. Having handles means you’ll be able to enjoy your tube at higher speeds because you have something to hold on.

You’ll be amazed at what you will find on the market. Naturally, most tubes are actually made in China but heavily marketed in the USA. There are some seriously professional-looking tubes available if you are ready to spend a couple hundred dollars.

While tubes are loads of fun and the easiest way to get into watersports, don’t let the buzz of the moment catch you off guard. Always think about safety and always make sure your kids know the rules and are wearing a personal floatation device.

Simple and fun? Without a doubt.
