Do a normal wake jump, but at the highest point, pull the handle to your lead hip. Then reach around with your back hand and grab the handle (unless you want to land it blind). This will keep you on axis. If you rotate too early or off the wake it will throw you wayyyy off axis. Good luck!
I just landed one this weekend, Super Stoked!!!! I try and take this trick W2W for now. I ride goofy foot so coming in heelside I wait for the pop and spin backside, turning my head to look at the wake and landing. I try and reach for the handle about the last three quarters of the trick. I practiced this trick by doing ollie 180's to get the feel of landing blind and passing the handle. Good luck!!
