Anyone put a box on a tube before behind boat?
Just saw this before going to class looks dope. I know there was something like this in a couple full length videos before right? What you guys think. Anyone wanna build one... Looks sketchy but fun all at the same time.

How do you like that? We can embed videos.

the cassette wakeskate team had the pink box back in 2003, but the box was set up perpendicular to the wake. It was basically like a funbox you'd find in skating, painted pink, and shredded to pieces by the cassette dudes. you could actually boardslide it or whatever instead of doing a bunch of weird disasters on it.

ajholt7, the linked video doesn't work for me. Gives me an error when I click on yours. Might just be my computer, but the original link works.

Same here. The originator of the video might not allow embedding. $.02

There's a tube on Grindwater's site that has a slider on it, but I don't think you can buy it.

That video of the wall was driving me nuts for a minute and a half, I hate the short shots of him about to hit it.
Watson did his Seadoo rail in Out Of The Pond as well.

o man. that would be fun to slide from wake to wake. I wanna do it

waterdork88 03-01-2010 10:31 PM

and the ramp on a tube that was jibbed in Box of Fun :)

Green Benwood hit one several times in the truth. i also remember seein parks hit a good lookin slider on a small section i think it was the truth too, he wasn't really in the vid as he's not a liquid force rider but i remember it showin a short part with him hitting it. it was like a rainbow lookin slider on a tube. i could have the vid wrong but i remember seeing it somewhere.

I love the camera man hanging onto the handle...genius idea by CWB.

sippi 03-02-2010 9:55 AM

In the cwb one, it would have worked better if one of the tubes were out side of the wake and one was inside so he could have hit more of it. then you just use the wrap handle to hold and shorten the line so you get back across in front of it. he built that beautiful tube slider and is one using 10 percent of it.

sidekicknicholas 03-02-2010 10:28 AM

I've made one before... it was two tubes, on the tubes were like 16" square plastic creates to give it height, and between the we had 16' trex boards.... it worked alright but its novelty ran out pretty fast.

andy_nintzel 03-02-2010 11:15 AM

we made a 8 foot towable a few years back, it was stupid fun. Really We just strapped a skate fun box to a Giant tube that I have the hardest part was towing it, the box was pretty heavy and it really wanted to whip when you turned, we lost one tube rope when we flipped the box. But all in all it was a good way to kill a saturday afternoon.

AntNoPrepNeeded 03-02-2010 1:27 PM

sounds like a party. I wanna see more people gap from the wake to rails. like lyman did in push process that was so snowboardy.

behindtheboat 03-02-2010 1:29 PM

Sounds like you're thinking of My Side with Parks hitting one. Watson hit it too
