Wakeboard Lines Sizing Chart
When selecting a wakeboard mainline you should look at two main factors; stretch and length. Always select a non stretching rope. Unlike the waterski lines that offer the forgiving stretch and actually pull the rider around the waterski corse a wakeboarder needs a line that will not cause slack or recoil when in the rider is in the air. This stretching beavior on the part of ski lines acually limits the amount of height that a rider can attain.
When it comes to line lenght a rule of thumb is to look for something betwen 50 to 65 feet. A general rule of thumb is that as you progress in your riding you will require more line lenght. Why you ask? Well a shorter line will limit the amount of air that you can catch off the wake and if you want to go big then you need greater distance.
