A friend of mine taught me to shorten the tube line a bit and set the PP for 18 MPH. Then have a blast trying to knock them off swinging them around. This way you are not going so fast as to endanger them but the shorter line lets you whip them around a bit easier. Oh, full ballast can add to the excitement as well.
I as well prefer not to tube, but the kids enjoy it. So after I'm at the point where I can't hold onto the handle any longer or the water has turn to crap, they are welcome to tube as much as they want.
