Seadoo waterkiing , rope length ?
My wife bought me ski's and ski rope. It can change sizes all the way to 75 feet. Seems kind of far to pull someone behind a seadoo.
What rope lengths do yall use when you pull someone with waterski's.

I used about 15 -20 ft of rope to tow my freinds behind my ski in a big 3 person tube....

I don't know how much exactly but I put a lot of rope out to keep me out of the jet wash. However there's a wedge on this 03 gtx/sc so it throws a long get wash.

70 feet is about right for pulling a skiier, 55 or 60 for pulling a wakeboarder and 40 for pulling tubes..

Agreed, you need about 70 feet, 65 can do both skiier and tube, but tube riders in particular will companin about jet spray at anything below about 50. Make sure you have an experienced driver if the skier is good, beacuse big slalom turns can pull the ski around, driver needs to contstantly adjust speed and steering to give the best ride. The mirrors on our Wake model are invaluable for this, you can see when he is going to dig it in and make allowances.
