so I need to get a board and rope to start surfing. Which kind of rope to you guys like, the one with a small handle or one with "T" handle?
I am not asking about these two specifically, just the style. Thanks.

I have a Proline T handle that very rarely ever gets used in the last 2-3yrs.
Braided one myself with thicker tube rope and an old ski rope handle and love it. It is thick enough that no one even thinks of making the mistake of coiling it up a bunch around their hand. (yes, she got yelled at for that little loop she's holding)

I had an extra heavy tube rope that we cut into sections and made surf ropes for 2 different boats. We tied several knots in the ends to allow for something to grip as well.2008 Moomba Mobius LSV Ballast III (stock), Heater, Roswell Quad Spin Pro, Bimini

I have a t handle and never use it. We prefer the Liquid Force type you listed. Foam grips on the rope above the knots are very comfortable.2011 Mobius LSV

liquid force. found it to be easier to train noobs than knots in rope or thandle. for me, makes no difference either way.'06 Supra Launch 20SSV-gone but never forgotten

I'm paranoid about anyone sticking their arm through the handle or coiling the rope so I use a real fat T handled rope.My Mom said I'm not allowed to get wet!

I have the rope that came with my cwb ride, it's a thick braided with knots every foot or so, small t handle at the end. 7 years so far and wouldn't change. I like teaching people with it too because it's easy to have them choke up and get closer to the boat or vice versa.
