How Long Should a Wakeboarding Rope Be?

A wakeboarding rope of approximately 50-60 feet is typical. However, boarders may prefer a shorter or longer wakeboard rope based on their personal preference and skill level. The length of the rope will dictate the type of waves the rider experiences. Waves closer to the boat are more predictable. For this reason beginners may opt for shorter ropes while more experienced boarders may prefer the challenge of less predictable waves further from the boat.
