Wego Kite Tube Wins 2006 Sports Product of the Year

Share Article

The Sportsstuff Wego Kite Tube is the hottest watersports product this year. When towed behind a boat, the Wego Kite Tube can hover 20-feet in air with one person on board.

Drum roll, please. And the winner of the 9th Annual Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association Sports Product of the Year Award is…...the Wego Kite Tube by SportsStuff, Inc.

The Sportstuff Wego Kite Tube is a ten-foot diameter flying tube. This one-rider inflatable tow tube whips across the water like a deck tube or glides like a kite while being pulled behind a motor or ski boat. It is the first of its kind and is pioneering a new exciting segment of watersports. The retail price is $599.95.

"Each year, the Sports Product of the Year Award is a way to help honor and publicize many of the dynamic entrepreneurs in the sporting goods industry," said Tom Cove, president of the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association (SGMA). "The inventors of these new products are true visionaries."

Nominations for this program began last fall. In January of this year, the top 30 semifinalists of this program were released following a vote from a group of the leading sporting goods industry retailers.
