4. Something about 'face-first' is making me wary of this 'sport'
With my luck I'll have a collision with a manatee coming up for air

6. From the picture -- is is just me

7. Nah, haven't you ever tubed before?
You keep your head up and the pull of the boat kind of lifts the front part of your body up!

11. Yeah, I've tubed before
and not the leisurely kind of ride, more like the mechanical bull variety. Guess I'm just wondering what would happen when someone wiped out in one of those things. :evilgrin:

10. I don't see it as anymore dangerous than regular
tubing. Unless you get tangled up somehow in the tube. But that could happen with any type of water sport/recreation. There certainly are risks that follow anything like that, but damn, I bet it is fun!

:)

12. It's the shape that gives me pause
If I'm not mistaken, in a regular tube, you flip and that's it - this looks like it would almost force you into a face-to-face confrontation with the water if something goes wrong.

I could be wrong, though. :shrug:

16. Well usually people will let go when
something is happening. Your hands just give. And as soon as you let go, the momentum almost completely stops while the boat still is going for a second anyway. I do see what you mean though!
