Thanks to the guys at Ski Shack, got a Tsunami surfboard. Did not really think about the rope while I was there. Do most people just shorten their board rope (I have an old one that could be used for this) or get a separate surf rope?

I use a surf rope. Would say it is safer. I would get the longer surf rope so you can connect it to the tower.

any suggestions or links? Will be weeks before I get near the dealer again, probably just order the rope.

this is the rope I have. Love it cause it is good for teaching noobs on, the handle makes it very easy for beginners to get up. The rope is pretty long and easily shortened depending on your wave. I've used a handful of other ropes on friend's boats and this one is my favorite by far.

I have this bad boy. Handle makes it great and easy to get up. The sections make it easy to pull yourself where you need to be, and everyone likes that the first link is a pretty hefty bungie so you dont get a massive slack jerk when you fall out quickly.

I would use Bakes.

But this is a few other good places.

As far as suggestions I would just say make sure it is long, and floats. I would stay cheap the plan is to get rid of it after you get up anyway right. :rockon:

Someone has to play devils advocate here. I use an old ski handle. I connect it to the grab handle on the back so I never have to reconnect for surfing. Taught many newbies to surf without any trouble or "inevitable" injuries. Maybe I'm cheap, Maybe I'm a better teacher :Tease3: , In the end I don't surf with any rope so I couldn't be bothered to spend a cent on one.
