by | Oct 13, 2016 | Sports

Riding water towables are fun. There is no arguing with that. They give a great adrenaline rush to all, regardless of age. But even with their undisputable fun, it is important to keep safe at all times. To ensure your safety on your water towable and floating tubes, there are five items you should have. Without these items, you should even get on the waters.

Tow rope

Tow ropes all have break strength tolerance rating on them. It is this rating that will guide you on the number of persons you can tow on the water towable. To tow one person, a 2,000 lb. rope will do while a 4,000 lb. and 6,000 lb. rope will support two persons and more than three persons respectively. Tow ropes are designed for the job they do. They are scientifically enhanced to withstand the tension and pressure applied for prolonged hours.

Tow rope harnesses

These greatly improve the water sporting experience. How? Well, they are designed to center the tow rope as they pull on the boat. This keeps it from getting entangled and getting caught in the motor. This improves the overall performance of the towable

Safety flags

In most states, you are required to have a safety flag up on the window or deck. This alerts other boaters that you are towing so they can keep a safe distance. These flags are readily available and very easy to use. They are made of simple sticks and suction cups which stick effortlessly to a flat and smooth surface.

Air pumps

This is one of the biggest investments you can make. Many air pumps on the market provide you with value. With the effort and time they save you, they are more than handy pieces of equipment – they are lifesaving. Sure there are still manual pumps available on the market, but electric pumps have in the recent past grown in popularity courtesy of their efficiency, long run time and mobility.

Life jackets

Every time you are on the water, you should have on a life jacket. It doesn’t matter whether you are a great swimmer or not. Life jackets are mandatory.
