"SportsStuff Inc. voluntarily recalled 19,000 Wego Kite Tubes in July in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. " So I wondered what a kite tube is:
The company’s kite tubes are 10-foot-wide inflatable rafts tethered to the back of a powerboat. When the user pulls on the handles, the tube becomes airborne, making the rider into a human kite.
