I was looking at my pic in one of the earlier posts and it seems like i am in front of the peak of my wake. This is the boat (sky supreme) with no ballast, 20 gals of gas, and 2 people in the boat and at 24mph. I am running 65' rope plus handle.

let me know what you think, what should i do.

If you're consistently clearing both wakes and landing in the flats, let the rope out a 5 foot section at a time.

depending on the rope you got, think about getting a new Accurate line.
Whats going on with the wake, was the boat turning, also with that little of weight I would think you would be going at like 22mph.

you should try going about 20-21mph at 65ft and see how that works out. that would put you at the peak of the wake.

well it depends... is it 24 on Perfect pass? find a skier to help calibrate your speedos... I need to do mine, I ride at 27 which is actually probably 23ish and 22 on every other boat is a good speed

I would slow the boat down unless you can get more weight. Maybe try 23 mph at 70 feet.

i have built in bags that add about 600lbs when full, but i am not as comfertable htting a wake that big. i have a more difficult time staying balanced.

Its not 24 with perfect pass, but the speedo is pretty close, because the cops on our lake have radar guns, 35mph speed limit.

Did you clear the second wake on the jump in that photo? If you are not clearing both wakes then you definitely don't need to lengthen the rope.

If you are clearing the wake and you are unsure about lengthening then I would suggest adding shorter segments and not going with a 5' extension right off the bat. Just adding 2'-3' will have noticable impact. There is nothing sacred about 5' increments and you may go right past your sweet spot by using too long an extension. It's real easy to go buy a piece of rope and make you own extension. Since it's going right on the tower, even if it's not "wakeboard" rope it will work fine to dial in your right length.
