This is probably going to be the most epic TeamTalk thread ever. Mark the calendar boys.
I have a tube for my nieces and nephews and their friends (ages 9-15) and they don't come out enough nor do they want to spend time learning to wakeboard....they want to get on a tube and I am OVER tubes- Buying every 2 years, filling them up, emptying them, dealing with big wet blobs of fabric, emptying ballast and then refilling, the invariable noggin crack if 2 are ridding etc...
I'll pull them all day but I am just sick of pulling tubes. Plus if there are others out I don't want to destroy the water.
In short, Knee board or this? I am not leaning either way and my one thought with the wakesled is even the youngest could handle it. Anything else I am missing?
