You're probably letting the handle get away from you at the end of the trick. Try keepin your elbow close to your body after the handle pass.

Or, you could be holding the handle too high on your pull.

Make sure not to throw the spin, until you completely leave the top of the wake. If you spin too early, it could throw you off-axis and cause you to faceplant. Take your time! Have you tried the wrapped 360's. They are a good way to start.
