congrats!. it is a great feeling, isn't it. how fast are you being pulled at? i go w2w everytime when i'm being pulled at 24mph at 65 feet. i never tried it at any other speed, so maybe that isn't a deal breaker, but you never know. i'm sure that as you land more and more, they will loft a little farther out.

21.7 @ 70' not sure if thats right I was behind my buddys boat so i was just kinda dialing everything in. thats another question though- when everyone talks about feet behind the boat are they talking what the actual length of the rope is from tower or the distance from the back of the boat?

Rope lenth is just the actual measure of the rope from the tower or what ever you have your rope hooked too. Your rope length should be decieded by, boat (Wake width), speed, and skill level. You have a couple options for your tantrum that might help you get it wake to wake. I would suggest you speed your riding up to 22.5/23mph to make the wake more narrow, or just shorten up the rope 5ft and ride a 65' rope because the closer to the boat you are the more narrow your wake will become.

Hope that helps.
