How long should a wakeboard rope be?

Rope Length

The length of the rope depends on the skill level of the rider and where the wake is. The standard ski rope is 75 feet. This is too long for wakeboarding because when you're that far out, there is no wake. The rope should be anywhere from 65 to 45 feet. Some people say the rope should be a little shorter for a beginner, but I think its personal preference. Most ropes are sectioned so you can add or subtract the length. Experiment and find a length that is comfortable, but still keeps you in the wake.
