Tubing behind a boat is great entertainment for the whole family or a group of friends. Here's our top 10 reasons why boat tubing is an awesome way to enjoy the imminent heat this summer.

1. It's Easy

Unlike other water sports, tubing behind a boat requires very little skill. Seriously, if you can sit on a couch, you can sit on a tube behind a boat. You might need some instruction in order to learn how to water-ski, kneeboard or wakeboard. With boat tubing, however, you are guaranteed to be successful and have fun on your first attempt.

2. It's Cheap

Compared to other water sports, water tubing is less expensive. If you have access to a boat, the only other equipment you'll need is a good rope, a tube, and of course, life jackets. A wide variety of tubes are available, so you should be able to find one that fits your budget and your needs.

3. Speed is Optional

Other water sports require a minimum speed for the skier or boarder to be successful. Water tubing can be enjoyed at any speed, giving riders the option to choose a speed for their comfort level. Idling speed ensures a slow, relaxing tow behind the boat. On the other hand, a high-speed run guarantees a thrill ride full of bumps, jumps, and turns.

4. Tubing All Day Can be a Workout

Getting on and off the tube, and hanging on during your ride, can challenge your balance and strength. It can prove to be a particularly good workout for your core and arms. Of course, the intensity of the workout will depend on your speed and type of tube. The best part is, it's so fun you don't even realize you're getting a workout!

5. Any Boat (With a Motor) Will Do

Your boat doesn't need a high-powered engine to pull a tube behind it, but a boat with a little power makes it a whole lot more fun.

6. You Don't Have to Get in the Water. But You Might!

You don't have to get completely in the water if you don't want to. With a little balance, it is possible to climb on the tube directly from the boat. At the end of the ride, boat passengers can pull you back in and you can climb back aboard. With other water sports, however, you will definitely start and end completely in the water.

7. Fun for All Ages

People of all ages can enjoy water tubing. The right tube, plus a slow and gentle pace, makes it safe and comfortable for young children and more cautious types. Higher speeds will definitely make it entertaining for the thrill-seekers in any group.

8. Variety of Roles

Boat tubing is fun whether you're riding the tube, a passenger on the boat, or the boat driver. You always need a driver and a spotter, but most boats can accommodate more passengers. Sometimes, watching others’ reactions to the speed and the ride is more fun than tubing yourself.

9. Multiplayer Fun

The more the merrier when it comes to tubing. It's fun to take turns and even ride tandem. Some tubes are specifically designed to accommodate more than one person at the same time.

10. Nature’s Air Conditioning

We really can't think of a better way to cool off on a hot summer day than to get out on the water. The wind, the spray of water, or a full submersion is sure to cool you off during the dog days of summer.

Now it's time to start planning your next adventure! We hope you'll enjoy a fun and safe time tubing behind a boat this summer.
