When it comes to tubing in Texas, it's essential to be aware of the speed restrictions. As a general rule, keep your speed below 10 mph when towing people 12 years old or younger; below 20 mph for younger teens (ages 13 to 18); and below 25 mph for teens and older adults. Additionally, keep the tip of the probe raised until the probe is in the plane. In Texas, no child under the age of 13 can drive a Personal Watercraft (PWC) unless accompanied by an adult who is 18 years or older.
There is no age requirement to drive a jet ski, but there must be a seat for everyone who uses the PWC or is being towed by it. If you have a three-seat jet ski and one person driving, you can have two people towed behind. It can also take one person towed and two people on the jet ski. Once a fourth person participates, you'll need to find a larger jet ski or move to a boat. The number one rule to keep in mind when pulling a tube is that you should always maintain a safe distance from the shore and from objects such as springs, springs, or buoys.
Even if your state doesn't require an observer, it's always advisable to have one on board, especially if you're carrying children in a tube. Kite tubes were banned in many states after several accidents that resulted in deaths and serious injuries. Therefore, they are no longer manufactured.
