It is with the first gen ride engine.
I’m usually surfing 95% of time, low wind high winds, doesn’t matter.
I wnat to have the option of hooking when jumping or back rolling with the surf.
The rope is fine for that but when jumping with the hook you get up a few feet higher and a more direct feeling.
It’s all about feeling
Anyways I’ll try it and if it’s a bad idea , I’ll let you know
