Let it out
A longer line can lead to greater control, bigger tricks and better style.
With a longer line, you can start your cut very easily and slowly build your edge as you approach the wake. Things will feel slower, giving you more control and extra time to tweak your edge or body position.
With a longer rope, the distance between wakes is wider, so you’ll have more time in the air going wake to wake.
Style it out
Use that extra time in the air to work on your style. Focus on holding your grabs longer and really poking and tweaking your tricks. Go to wakeboardingmag.com/style for style tips.
Let your rope out 5 feet at a time and get accustomed to the longer approach and time in the air before you let your rope out more.
A longer line gives you more time to spot, get ready for and ride away from your landings, which should lead to more controlled touchdowns.
