hot tub wiring

what gauge wire do i need to run from my main panel (50 amp double) to my hottub breaker (50 amp double), then from the hot tub breaker to the control circuit on the hot tub. the run from the main breaker in the garage to the tub is less then ten feet.
thanks!

6-3 for the indoor section, and then a red, black, white and green thhn/thwn in conduit from the disco to the tub.

How is the tub installed laid out relative to the garage and the panel? What is the tub sitting on?
