I learnt this from higher ed but anyways. YOU want to keep the handle in the exact same spot through the entire rotation. Keep your chin on your shoulder and it controls your rotation.

I've been working on this also, some things that have helped me recently, though I still feel like I need more air are that I'm keeping my front leg really straight all the way though the wake, as I launch I'm brining up my back leg to add rotation, this has really helped me get around better, I have been landing on my board but haven't been able to spot my landings well enough to ride away. Also it always seems like my front hand is getting pulled off the handle about 3/4 of the way through the rotation. I guess I should throw it a little later, but if anyone has more tips that would be great.

you are suppose to soften your front leg as you ride into the wake so thagt the tail of your board is loaded and is kicked around. to get more height load the line harder and cut from further out. one thing that can hinder the height is if you throw your head to soon off the wake. one thing that helps keep everything in order is trying to keep your elbows locked to your rib cage because this keeps your body from opening up and losing your center of rotation.
