You will need two boogie boards and two ski ropes… oh yeah, and a pool.
Two relay teams will race against each other from one end of the pool to the other. While one player kneels on the board, another person standing on the edge of the pool pulls them the length of the pool. The person that was kneeling on the boogie board and being pulled across the pool first then trades positions with the “puller.” He/she then pulls that person back to the “starting” end of the pool. Two more players from the team repeat the two-legged trip. Continue until the first team finishes.
For safety sake, you may want to have adult leaders positioned around the pool in case of an accident. Also, you may want to shorten the overall length of the pool by 5 feet so that the “puller” does not drag the “rider” into the walls at the ends of the pools.
