Haha, ya there might be an easier way to do it, but later that night that I posted it I made that same tube, and it only took me about 20 minutes.
The way I did it was I extruded the circle along the curve path (like R@nSiD says), then I used the split polygon edge tool to make a lot of rings on each side of the extruded cylinder. Then I made the inner rings larger, this creates the ripples. I then smoothed the polygon and acheived the same look.
(When I said every 3rd, I just mean like spreading out the ripples, sorry for the confusion. If you extruded out all the rings then you wouldnt get ripples.)
