Hey guys. I'm new to wake boarding. I bought a 2007
Bayliner 175BR. It has the 3.0 with what someone had called a dolphin tail? I guess it helps plane out better. Anyway I was wondering if I just wasted $1600 on a bigairtower. I bought the storm tower combo #1 from bigairpylons.com. I can get up, and jump but not w2w. I also didn't know anything about non stretch ropes, I'm using a nylon rope and will be lookin to purchase a non stretch, I just don't know where to look. I don't have a ski shop locally.

I bought a hyperlite board with apex closed boot bindings. It doesn't have find and idk if they make a difference. Heres some pictures. Any advice as far as weighting or riding would help out a lot. Thanks.

Well if the tower sells for 899 and you spent 1600 yeah you wasted some money there! However, the tower is gonna help you for sure. But more importantly, first you'll need to learn how to edge and jump correctly. The non-stretch rope is a step in the right direction.
Post a little vid of yourself riding and we'll let you know what's right and wrong.
http://www.boardstop.com should have a good rope.
