It might be a good idea to post it under "Suggestions" here too, http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...splay.php?f=18 and edit the spelling so someone can understand what your saying. If your using Firefox, it has spell check too.

Sham I need some advice on surfing from you. How long is your rope or home many feet are you from behind the back of the boat? I am having a hard time finding the "sweet spot." Can you go without the rope for a decent amount of time?

Having a surf section would be a great idea. Justinglow, for beginners the sweet is usually small and close to the boat. As a surfer improves the sweet spot greatly increases. I make my own surf ropes. I make around six different loops spaced around a foot apart on the rope. This allows me to easily adjust the length of the rope while the surfer is surfing.

hey justin u really just have to adjust it till u find where u need to be. i have a handle with the extensions off of my wakeboard rop that i do not use that made a perfect surf rope. here is pic of both of my ropes in use. my second one is a knotted one it is ok if u just want to ride in the sweet spot. drylandfish and i like to do 360's and stuff so we use the reg handle!
