For the younger kids, I recommend the cockpit style tubes, or the sit-up tubes as they give the kids a feeling of being more secure. It also means you can increase the boat speed a bit more to get them used to going faster with less danger of the kids falling off. I would never recommend a one-person tube for the younger kids. They always seem to prefer going with a sibling, cousin, or friend.
