Hi <BR>We're some guys from the onknown country far far away called Denmark. We need a tower, well we think we need a tower. Because, how much will a tower help us doing those big tricks? Do you get more air with a tower? We are starting to get yiggy with the wakeboarding so we'll need some nice equipment too. Thanks.

yiggy?<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>A tower will help more than you know. A tower will allow you to get much higher, but will not MAKE you. That is the key point, but if you are wanting to go big (or go home) get a tower for sure! Clay

Think of the force on the rider with the rope attached to the stern of the boat vs on a tower. <BR> <BR>The stern the boat goes lower in the water with weight and on a tower the rope goes higher when on plane at wakeboard speed. The tower force provides an upward force versus a neutral or downward force when attached to the stern. <BR> <BR>You can make a pylon yourself pretty cheap, check out <a href="http://www.diyTower.com" target="_blank">www.diyTower.com</a>, or eBay. Try that or ride behind a boat with a tower to know the difference.

Thanks for the help. And sorry, my english is not the best. Hehe, afterall im just a stupid dane. We'll try to build a tower or a pylon. But we are just affraid that boat will turn over when we go wide out to the side?
