I know this really doesn't go with trick tips but i couldn't find a better section. I recently started wakeboarding and am planning to head out and try and do my first wake jump next weekend. One thing i seriously need to know is DO YOU NEED A TOWER ON YOUR BOAT TO GET HIGHER AND FARTHER WHEN YOU JUMP THE WAKE? or can i at least go w2w? please reply

You will get by just fine with out a tower for jumping wake to wake and grabs and other simple tricks like that. Though once you start trying flips and more spins it definitly helps to have a tower.

One thing a tower helps alot for is getting you out of the water you wwill notice a difference if you get one. You pop right out.

A tower helps SOOO much. It wont make you better but it will allow you to get much better than without one. The worst is riding on a boat w/o a tower after you have been riding with a tower for a while. Get a monster! www.monstertower.com

Whats the difference from a pole and a tower other than the racks and the speakers and stuff

Sorry to go off topic to this thread.... But what is a typical price for a decent tower with board racks and install? How hard are they to install?

yes...works just as good as far as riding performance. any way you can get the rope up higher the better. is a physics thing....with every force there is an equal and opposite force. with every force there is an X and Y component. THE X IS WHAT YOURE INTERESTED IN. it is an actual upwards force when loading the line and releasing that force when you pop off the wake.
