20 is a good speed, as for rope length I would say start at about 70ft, if that's too far you can come in some or go out more

I ride at 21mph with a 60' rope. I like it cause it makes it easy to clear the wake but i'm thinking of going a bit longer. Also, at 21, 60 feet is where my wake is prime. I'm fairly new to the sport as well, this is just what i've been comfortable with.

We ride at 23-24 mph on an 80' rope but this has taken a few years to build up too. Start with the standard 65' rope plus handle so actually about 70' total and ride at least at 21 if not 22, you need speed to give air and you need air to clear the wake

have fun and good luck
