Re: line length and jumping?
- Still waiting for some friggin wind. One thing about the 45m lines
is you get a huge window which makes a toeside turn or any
transition really easy to come out powered in no wind. I would say
in a safe launch it might be a good thing for beginners as the power
is so smooth. That probably goes against all the safety concerns
I will try a moderate line increase next time to 35m or so.

I used to be able to jump 5 to 10' with a XXXL and 45 m line in around
10 - 11 knots.
I also jumped very high with a 5m Jojo Rage and 40 m line in stronger
