I think he meant their stupid because theres no chicks on the boat. I don't see the problem with the driving as there appear to be no other boats out. But you gotta dig that driver. Hes obviously a party animal.

they should seriously have a different spot for tube's! Seriously there is nothing more frustrating then getting ready to rip nice smooth water in a cove and a tube cuts through and kills the water! Tubing is about hitting rough water anyways! go out to the open!! stay out of the coves!

man, i dont mind tubing. Yes, it sucks when guys are out there tossin up the glass, but I think I speak for most of us that the first "watersport" activity I had ever partook (or is it partaken)...anyway..was probably TUBING. Tubing opened my eyes to boats, other watersports, ect. I was probably like 2yrs old riding around at 5mph w/ my mom or something, you know what I mean. Tuuuuuuuuuubing, got me to where I am with liking wakeboarding ya know. And your darn right, if its ruff waters, and theres nobody riding out on the lake, tie up the tube, chug a beer, and have some fun..

plus hot babes love tubing...and "SUPERMANS!"

I was thinking the opposite. Pro riders can still kill it in bad water....unlike most of us.

I'm impressed with the t-ups. Most tube drivers have no clue how to set them up. Looks like they are having fun to me...yeah pics would be better with some bun in it, but I have seen plenty of hardcore wakeboats without any boatfluff.

Just walk by them on the ramp with the shirt that says: "Tubings for fat kids" We wear ours with pride. I don't have a problem with tubing, except when they are destroying the only line on the lake or creating a safety hazard.

J-Rod - i'm a little disappointed that you would put those tubers higher on a podium than wakesurfers. I wakesurf and will say this....we drive in a straight line and we don't wakesurf where others are wakeboarding. Tubers are going a lot faster and turning every which way tearing the water up in all directions. Maybe you came across some really disrespectful wakesurfers that were arching their turns in the only smooth water. But don't act like wakesurfing is such a horrible thing. At least we are out there enjoying a BOARD SPORT that one can progress at, as opposed to being slung around aimlessly to see who falls off.

I say shame on anyone for acting like you own the water. True, everybody should be respectful of others on the water and know how and where to ride so all can enjoy. I am just happy to be on the water as everyone SHOULD be!

So everyone quit your complaining and go out and enjoy life and and the water!

SIDENOTE: I DO GET PISSED WHEN TUBERS COME INTO THE ONLY COVE WITH SMOOTH WATER BUT WHEN THEY STOP I GO AND EXPLAIN POLITELY WHY THEY SHOULD TAKE THEIR BOAT TO THE CHOPPY WATER (BECAUSE IT ENHANCES THE TUBING EXPERIENCE). I DO THIS AFTER I OFFER THEM A BEER SO THEY DON'T SEE ME AS BEING NEGATIVE!

Jason,

I get it now, tubers are really government spies, the government has quit using the black helicopters and have switched to big bertha tubes......

The government wants to ban wakeboarding....hide your boards boys...

That is ingenious!!!we will never see them coming...

The basic requirements for making a tube ride exciting are powerturns and crossing big wakes.

I would consider these guys total idiots if they were holding a straight line and avoiding wakeboats.

Has anyone seen the new Sevylor Wakeslider yet? I thought the point of tubing was to trust the driver to throw you around like a rented mule. not steer yourself at your own pace. Then again, maybe these people would have courtey and not be power turning left and right.
