Default Need to try this behind my Hustler

Extreme Tubing I tried it with my old Scarab running about 50mph and turn hard . It usually tore up the tube though.No ski tow on the Hustler.

Cool vid clip.2 1/2 min long.

We had some big 'offs' pulling behind a 3 seater PWC at full throttle, and then a full throttle hard turn. No where near the air those guys were getting, (sick), but definately some high speed 'human skipping.'

We used to ski behind my 30 Scarab. we pulled a friend's dad at 65mph on his 65th birthday. He was and still is a tough guy.

For a real thrill, atttach a bungee cord to the ski/tow line and then give them a good whip. Then watch the show. Attach the cord at the tube end of the rope.

I have more than a dozen of those one person round tubes.... 90$ MSRP, 50 for one, 75 for two

That kind of tubing is fun, especially when you go a few feet off of the beach (early morning) and try to throw the tuber up the shore.
