If you're planning on doing any wakeboarding at all then you're going to need one of these to hitch a ride on a boat with. We'd generally recommend a shorter rope for beginners and a longer one for more experienced riders. As the rope gets longer the wake you hit at the back of a boat gets wider so going from side to side and landing jumps is harder. With longer lines you also will find you go faster. Whatever your riding style, we offer a selection of different lengths and strengths to match what you want.
