Thanks for opening this discussion.

I have a project due in my Statistics class and I need to gather some data. I am hoping to get at least 40 responses to this survey. I am trying to predict what the rope length will be for someone in relation to the years of experience they have. Here's the survey:

1. What is the length of rope (from the boat to the handle) you use when wakeboarding under normal conditions?
2. How many years have you been wakeboarding?
3. Are you male or female?

Normal conditions are considered your average riding spot, boat setup, and weather. I know this survey is short and there could be many other variables to examine, but I have set this up to meet the professor's criteria for gathering data.

Thanks everyone! I'll post the results once I get over 40 responses and plug the data into the formulas.

8 years including 2003, or 7 through 2002 because I became injured at the beginning of last season. So use that as you wish.

Awesome! I'll cap it off with the legendary Mike Novak. I have a great mix of data here to work with so I am going to use what has been posted so far.

Thank you everyone for helping me out and answering the survey so fast. I'll post a follow-up discussion to let you all know the statistics on this. Hopefully I can dazzle you with some fancy mathematical lingo.

I do appreciate the great response, but anymore answers to the survey at this point will not be going into the sample. I have already begun to analyze it.

Thanks again!
