Sportsstuff Sumo Water Tube


This Sumo water tube by Sportsstuff industries is not for the faint at heart. It is a wild ride that is unlike any other ski tube ride on the planet. You can really manuever this wild ride while you are being pulled in the wake. You can steer it, roll it and jump it. It will scramble you like an egg!

If that sounds like it may be just a bit to much for you then do not worry, you the rider control all of the action and if you do not want a wild ride then you can just glide across the surface of the water. It is much like body surfing!

Check out these awesome features.

  • Rope Handle Included

  • Non- corrosive heavy duty gauge PVC material

You should really think about buying this tube if you already have a good water tube but you are looking for something a little different. You will be glad that you did.

Airhead Tow Rope

Hopefully you by now you already have a water tube and and electric air pump to inflate it. If you do you are almost ready to ride. There are just a few more pieces to the puzzle that must be acquired before the wild, wet fun begins.

You are going to need a tow rope. This rope will hook to the tube and allow your boat to pull the water tube safely and efficiently.  There are many tow ropes to choose from and you need to make sure that the one you choose is rated properly for the amount of riders you are going to have. Some water tubes allow more than one rider a a time and if you have three riders but you are using a tow rope that is only rated for one rider, then chances are your tow rope is not going to last.  You will be fine purchasing a rope that is rated for only one rider but you never know when you might decide to upgrade to a larger tube. Get a tow rope that is rated for up to four riders at once, this way there is never any guessing whether or not your tow rope will withstand the abuse.

This tow rope fits the bill perfectly. It is rated for four riders at once and it is not expensive. Look at some of it’s great features:

  • Two Sections
  • Pre-stretched and  UV-resistant, 5/8-in diameter, 16-strand rope
  • Exceeds the 4,150-lb break strength required by the WSIA for 4-rider tubes
  • Includes a Rope Keeper

Obrien Air Pump

Now that you have the best towable tube you are going to need a pump to inflate it. You can’t really ride one of these tubes deflated now can you?

There are many air pumps on the market today and finding the perfect one does not need to be a challenge. You can go the cheap route and get a manual air pump but you will be pumping while everyone else is riding.  I would suggest an electric air pump. These mighty little blowers will have your new water tube inflated in no time. The less time you spend inflating your tube will equal more time on the water.

This electric air pump can be used at the dock. Just simply plug it into your vehicle’s lighter port and your tube will soon be full of air. What I like about this pump is the AC adaptor. With this hand hookup you can hook directly to the battery on your boat and inflate your water tube while you are out on the water. It comes with three standard nozzles so you there will be no confusion on how to attach the pump to the tube.
