Water Freaks offer a variety of tube rides including:
20 Minute rides: We use a flat tube that can accommodate 2 riders at a time. The tube is pulled with a 115hp or a 125hp speedboat aided with a booster ball - this reduces rope drag and we can reach speeds of 60 km per hour. It ensures a great challenge to the riders and more often than not the riders meet their match. These rides normally leave the riders exhausted after only
10 Minute rides: We would normally alter 4 riders within a 20 min boat session, thus providing 2 tube riders 10 min rides while the other 2 friends enjoy the thrill of watching their friends in action on the tubes, who normally burst out laughing at their friends expense.
Couch tube rides: For the "not too wild" and very popular with children is the "couch tube" - it can take up to four riders and is towed at a speed of about 40 km per hour making it safe yet very enjoyable. Parents can therefore join the youngsters in the tube rides or enjoy their facial expressions from the boat.
Knee boarding: With a little of help from our drivers anyone could be able to master this toy.
Skiing: It takes a bit longer to master if you are a novice, but we can assist.
