Is the reelfly cyclone still around? we're sick of replacing ropes and fixing towers because someone forgot to watch the rope or to take it in. is there a device that rolls the rope in?

HeHateMe is selling the ropewinder in the classifieds, but it's a $500 piece of equipment.

Your crew runs over lines, or do you work for a shop?

Driver's responsibility! "Hey Brodie, stop staring at her t*ts and pull the rope in f*g." And as for driving over it, that was WakeViolator's fault too.

ahhh yes, nothing like having to pull the rider, control the ipod, and then after a set still have to jump back to the sundeck and wind the rope. My favorite is after you pull six people and its your turn, everyone is too liquored up to pull you. The burdens of being captain of the ship.

I take offence to that. I havent run over a rope in YEARS! I remember the last time, specificly. I was working for launch wakeboard school, and we were out on folsom. The gator crew was doing a land gap and we crused over to check it out. they had a long rope (a few hundred feet) and I took off after watching for a few pulls, and brain farted about where their rope was.

ha ha busted. He saved me a few weeks ago though i idled right over our rope like a newb. My favorite rope was run over at Boardstock last year, Thanks Troy. I don't even know how he managed to do it comming back to pick me up after I had fallen in the middle of the course. I was under the boat for 15 min. getting it off and right before I was done they had to cut it. I don't think that I have ever ruined a rope in my many years of driving, but I have run over a few. Please refresh my memory Corby,wakeviolater if I have.

I have only wrapped a rope around the prop once. The worst part about it was that the water was freezing cold and it was a brand new rope I had just bought. :-(
