Having a tube for the boat or jet ski is like having peanut butter with your jelly.
Towable tubes have really taken off in popularity, and with popularity comes some crazy, cool and very odd tubes.
I have listed the strangest, the oddest, and downright funniest towable tubes on the market for jet skis and boats. You won’t believe how crazy these designs get!
1. Hot Dog Tube
Probably the most well known towable tube for looking odd is the Hotdog Tube*.
Designed to be long and having riders sit one behind the other, it sure is a blast. There is no doubt you’ll get plenty of looks, and you won’t stop smiling because it’s one of those items that just puts a smile on your face.
This tube may not be legal in some areas when it comes to jet skis due to the seating capacity rules.
2. The Bandwagon
This next towable tube that is a little odd sure does have a lot going on for it.
It has seats everywhere and even places for you to stand on. This tube looks more like a playground toy than an actual tube for a boat, which can be just as fun as being pulled behind a boat.
3. Poparazzi Tube
This has been the best tube I have ever been in! This thing is such a blast. The round bottom allows for some crazy moments on the water.
The best part is that you can even stand up, which raises your center of gravity, making the tube so much more fun.
4. Dragon Tube
Just like the banana tube, or even the hot dog tube, you also have the dragon tube. I find the dragon tube (aka Loch Ness Tube) to be a little better than the hot dog option for the simple fact of it holding you in.
You get the back support and something to really grab on to. Plus, dragon sounds cooler!
5. Sumo Tube Splash Guard
The sumo tube, or the ride of your life tube, is the most playful and oddest tube on the market.
It’s a one-person tube that really gets you close to the water. One big perk is that if you fall off, it doesn’t hurt as bad since you’re surrounded by the entire tube.
My favorite part about the tube is not being towed, but instead riding the waves at the beach. This is the best tube for riding the waves and makes boogie boards seem lame.
What Is The Most Unique Towable Tube?
The most unique towable tube I’ve come across and rode is the hot dog tube.
With a boat, you can pull many people at once, and it’s the easiest one to stay on compared to most tubes. It’s not the most relaxing, that goes to the Super Mable*, but it’s great for a big group.
The hot dog tube is the funniest looking tube and gets the most attention on the water, that is for sure.
Best Tube For Multiple People?
The best towable tube for multiple people will be the Super Mable, but if you need more than 3 people the hot dog tube is the next best option.
The Super Mable* is the most comfortable and new tuber ready.
Can 1-Person Ride On A 2-Person Tube?
It’s fine to have one person on a two-person tube, or even a one person on a three-person tube.
What’s not okay is to have two people on a one-person tube or three people on a one or two person tube.
You also need to keep your local laws in mind, and the seating capacity of your boat or jet ski. If your boat can only hold 4 people, that means you can have a max of 4 people total on the boat or tube, so one person driving the boat and 3 people on the tube.
Most states require a spotter, skier down flag*, and mirrors to pull people for water sports.
