Monster Tower should ship one to you. www.monstertower.com

the one im getting is pretty good, and because of exchange rates, cheaper than monster tower.
is 2 meters - 2,15 meters a good measure?

2,15 meters is around 7 feet that would be good.

Assuming the measurement is from the floor, yes 7 feet is good. Have to allow a little room for some kick butt speakers.
FYI, the new Illusion (rear tube/tow point) is barely 6 feet above the floor. The X2 and other Zero Flex towers are closer to 7 feet. Nautique FCT's seem to be closer to 6 feet.
Good luck.

does the height of the tower matters a lot in the heigh u get from the jumps?
im an absolute newbie, and i have a outboard engine boat and ive been wakeboarding with a pylon of 1,3 meters.
Now that im getting this tower, will the height of my jumps increase a lot? how much?

More than likely, being a beginner you will "catch more air" with what your using now your being pulled down, with a tower you are pulled up. It will make it easier to get out of the water too.
