That is the question. How important is a tower to the wakeboard experience (I'm a compelete beginner buying a new boat)? Getting air? Pulling tricks? Boat and rider stability? Your thoughts and insights would be greatly appreciated.

not as much slack, more hangtime in the air, a more "lofty" feel in the air, easier to get up for beginners, slightly more air.

Definetly get a tower or extended pylon. Best boarding accessory out there

I recently rode a boat that didnt have a tower for the first time. I have to say that it was wierd! I noticed that it was a LOT harder getting up, the downward pull vs. upward pull tended to make it harder to edge, and most importantly, It was a lot harder to get air and stay in the air b/c the handle was pulling me back down vs up. <BR> <BR>So, in summary, get the tower.

Yes tower tower tower, and tower. Our new people succsess rate is 100% b/c of the tower i would like the think. It has also helped me w2w even with our small wide wake.so i say again tower tower tower
