Sumo Tube?

Has anybody seen one of these?
I stumbled into it when looking thru the Cabela's catalog.
I am not a fan of toobin, but wouldn't mind a ride in one when it is too rough to ski.

My kids saw one in Cabela's a while back and now they think they have to have one. Looks to me like a person would be in a world of hurt if they hit a wake head on...can anyone say stiff neck?

I can say it, “STIFF NECK”. That would be brutal end over end.

Cmon, with enough alcohol in you, your neck would be nice and loose when the header came.. I think it would roll alot in a turn or if you let go of the rope.. Not that I am a pro tuber or anything.....

The extreme tubing clip looked more fun than this rig. Even the guy riding it has a pained look on his face.

I am not against tubing, but that thing doesn't look safe to me.
I would be afraid to have their face that close to the water at tubing speeds. I think you could easily drown someone with it. You'll never see one behind my boat.

Thumbs down SportsStuff Sumo Tube ...

Wear it Steer it Roll it Jump it

The Sumo Tube is an exciting new twist to freestyle towables. It attaches to the rider, (this doesn't sound very safe) not the boat or tow rope. Simply slide into the Sumo Suit, hold a grab handle on a 60-ft. line, and you're ready to roll 360s, jump wakes, or just glide across the surface. Steering is as easy as turning arms left or right.

A fast and fun bodysurfing thrill ride, you'll never soon forget!
Single chamber inflates quickly. 38"L x 33" dia.
