The 7 Best Wakesurf Ropes & Handles of 2021

A majority of wakesurfers share the same thought process when it comes to ropes, they only plan on holding it briefly before tossing it once in the pocket, and don’t need anything past a basic rope. However, a wakesurf rope specific to your needs can be one of the most important tools to help you progress your riding, no matter your skill level. For beginners, a wakesurf rope is first used for balance and recovery if you fall too far back on the wake. For the more advanced riders out there a wakesurf rope can also be a huge tool when learning how to do tricks, everything from airs to ollies and shuvits.

Now that it’s been established that any type of wakesurfer can benefit from a quality rope, what are some of the features that might help you out for your needs? Let's dive in and examine the best wakesurf ropes of 2021.
