HomeDawq, you never really go for the handle in this attempt. You do a 180 with your right arm almost fully extended then just turn your body a little more and give up.

You need to "pull the rope to your hips" and get the handle pass. If you get the handle pass you will come around on this trick. The whole trick is the handle pass. If you leave the handle out in front of you like you did on this attempt, it will never happen.

The best practice tool for a 360 is a trampoline. Practice the handle pass over and over again. If you don't have a trampoline, just go for it on the water, but PULL THE HANDLE TO YOUR WAIST.

Let us know how it goes.

So i just need to make sure i keep the handle closer to my hip so that i can pass it behind my back? Thanks

Yes, basically try to touch your hands together behind your back, the handle will be right there. The key to this trick is removing the line tension so you can pass the handle, that is why you pull the handle to your waist. Good luck!

Ok, I've been here. The "boat wave" that I used to do with my arm when reaching for the handle is an easy thing to fix and if you don't you are going to smoke your shoulder trying to pass with your arm that far from your body.

So here you go. You'll need to put a little more weight on your front foot when you go up the wake. This will help you stay a little more on axis. Don't try to Ollie to much for pop. This is adding an jolt of tension and puts too much weight on your back foot. Cut out as far as possible and progress w/ a mellow edge the whole way up. Remember to straighten your legs and stand a little taller. Dave Briscoe calls it "resisting the wake". This will put you a better position to keep the handle close and stay upright. If you watch your video on slow-mo you can see the front quarter of the board is not even in the water up the wake. Now, as you get the pop, push your hip forward and begin to rotate your shoulders. As long as your elbows are in to your hips, the handle will be there. Also, I tend to be in more of a seated position the air. This helps you stay in a more powerful/controlled position for the pull of the handle when you get the pass. Once you get the pass, look for the boat if you aren't already and you'll stick the landing. Even if you don't get the handle, continue to rotate w/ your shoulders so you don't catch the HS edge and get whipped in neck as bad.

It takes a little faith that you're going to get around. I struggled with putting my back to the boat but once you get the handle in an attempt, you'll forget about it.

Good luck to you!
