Splash into Summer
Splash into summer with the latest and greatest water toys. Just a few of our favorites this summer:
Gladiator Super Brawler 3-Person Towable Tube:The exciting 3-Rider Super Brawler Towable Tube has two reinforced tow points for every kind of riding position from kneeling, to prone, to seated on the comfortable foam seat/kneepad with backrest. It’s great for thrill rides for any age. If you like to catch big air, this tube will have you flying with the seagulls.
Aquaglide Retro 2 Towable – a hot rod for the water! Barts Watersports calls this one of their premium towables! Retro 2 offers roadster-style performance for 1 or 2 people. Low deck seating keeps center of gravity low and built-in side wings help maintain fast-sliding stability even in the roughest of conditions. Comfortable shoulder height surround keeps riders secure no matter how extreme the conditions. Looking for even more action? Turn the Retro 2 around and ride chariot-style for a more active approach! The newly updated Retro 2 is made using heavy duty 26 gauge PVC bladders covered in 840d nylon for the best combination of strength, durability, performance and style. Includes heavy duty webbing reinforcement and QuickConnect Tow fittings at the front and back towing points. Check it out on Barts website at www.BartsWatersports.com
O’Brien Screamer series 2014:This always reliable tube is very durable and fun for anyone. Available in a one person or 2-3 person size, it also has large EVA pads to reduce those abrasions you might get on the elbows! Check out Barts Watersports for a good selection.
- And if you’re not the thrill seeker but rather the ‘chillin’, breezing, sippin’, singin’ Beachin’ (to borrow a favorite lyric from Jake Owen) kind of gal or gent, chill out in the CABANA ISLANDER. We found it online and on sale (at time of distribution) from Overton’s for $349.00. It features a detachable nylon cabana top for shade, a floating 16 qt cooler and is big enough for you and five of your friends!
Safety Tip: Towable Tube Safety, Courtesy of Bart’s
Boat driver should avoid excessive speed or sharp turns which might cause tube or other inflatable to flip over abruptly, resulting in serious injury to the rider(s). Most manufacturers recommend towing speeds below 20 mph. Be sure to read all safety instructions and warnings included with your towable tube.
