Speed to learn W2W Jumps, along with Rope Length?
Learning W2W jumps and want to know best speed and rope length to learn at...Help guys thanks....

Depends on the boat.

Most new riders will find clearing the wake common at 65 feet between 20-22mph

The shorter the better. Once you start getting it down lengthen the rope.

Epic 23V is the boat.... and I was thinking of starting around 65 and around 20mph and going from there....

scott it is best to start one wake jump 1st off 2nd wake then try 1st wake to learn pop. then try w2w the 65 ft at 20mph sounds good. the best advise i ever heard was from shaun murray. how you take off from the wake is most important. it determines how easy the landing .take off balanced and on edge land balanced and on edge. good luck and have fun.

Thanks Robert, yeah I did some of that last year but will start there this year to get back to able to pop off one wake and land. Should take a set or two. Then want to get accross that wake. I have been told it is almost easier to cross wake than just jump one wake. landing in the wash. So, just wanted to find out some thoughts on length and speed but sorta already had idea just wanted to make sure someone didn't say something like 18mph and 50' or something

Find the speed you are comfortable riding first. Most start out around 20MPH. Ride the longest line you can and still clear the wake. You will start with HS jumps and once clearing those, start working on TS jumps and keep the line where you need to be to clear it TS. 60-65 feet is pretty common as a starting point but you are better off with a line that is a little too short than too long - constantly casing the wake is no fun. Let out more line as you progress and don't worry about what line lengths others are riding at.

yeah scott i wasn't sure what you had already learned.what i learned at the wakeboard camp is to break down every trick to it's basics. start with a shorter line and slower speed. that makes any falls less painful. less pain equals more learning. have fun.

A 50' rope wouldnt be a bad idea to get the feel for it.
