Yeah, I would have said something similar to Sean. You're leaning away from the boat and actually toward your board, so it's easy to bring it right up and grab. Trick is to grab something other than indy, like tail, nose, or melon (sp). I've just tried to slap the board in those places to get used to reaching. Try just letting go with the back hand on HS and landing. Should give you the feel for it.
