    There are some variables to take into consideration with regards to rope length, wake size, shape, firmness, the speed you ride at, and most of all your ability.

    In general:
    Beginners = 55 to 60
    I ride at = 65 and would probably be considered an intermediate.
    I have had advanced riders at =70 75 behind my boat.

    Good luck, E

    Ps- Get yourself a good NON-stretch wake board rope, it makes a big difference.

    I am also at about 65 feet with a static line and it made a huge difference. I was using, at first a ski line and it kills your speed into the wake with the stretch. I bought the zebra braid 3/16 diameter line with a good handle and now I wouldn't even consider anything but a good board line. My speed is around 21 if the driver is paying attention(wife usually isn't).

    I did not know they even made wakeboard boats without perfect pass these days. I can't imagine riding without it. Perfect pass made towing so easy.

    Make sure you get perfect pass.

    PP will be on there by next season for sure. I told the wife and she said whatever made her job easier, she is all for it. Now if I could get her to stop looking at me when I go outside the wake and steering the boat in that direction, she will have it down. That sure kills your speed when they do that.
