With the best towable tubes that the market has to offer, it allows you to turn your boat to have a towable platform, perfect for doing water sports that would set you back not more than $100.

Water towables were meant to be used for a single person only, but there have been variations where it allows two people to be on at the same time, and everyone can use it, no matter the age.
