Making the mistake of coiling a wakeboarding rope as it is being pulled in from the water can result in knots in the rope. Knots in the rope may cause the rope to deteriorate quicker. A coiled rope may look neat and attractive, but the process of coiling a rope while pulling it in from the water is likely to result in knots.
