what do you mean by helping you figure this out? Which way to wrap it so you can do each one of these things? The best advice i can give you is attach the handle to a doornob or something and just walk through the rotation, and what not to figure it out.

The 360's are the easiest part. I wrap the same direction for both toeside and heelside. Right hand is the lead hand, with the rope coming around my right side and the main handle held with my left. I always rotate counter-clockwise. Make sure you are clearly off the wake before you start your rotation. Do you ride left or right foot forward?

i ride right forward. i havent used it yet (2morrow i will) put whenever i try to use it on land, my lead hand comes forward without spining. maybe its just cuz im on land and not in the air, but i dont know. the most i can spin is 360 bside, but when i do 180 frontside i need to do half a pass to make a full rotation. im sure if i go out and do it on the water it will be easier

You don't need to pass the handle at all on 180's, unless you are landing them blind. My instructions I gave you were for someone that rides left foot forward. Reread my other post, and do everything opposite. It might make more sense then. Sorry.

now u are really confusing me. u say right hand is lead hand but the next post u say its for left foot forwards? what?

"Right hand is the lead hand"

"My instructions I gave you were for someone that rides left foot forward"

so i hold the wrap handle in my left hand, and my right hand is holding the handle to my lead hip right?

OK and one other thing. I tried using this wrap handle yesterday, and i did a sort of one-handed raley (With no rotation). but i was doing something totally diffrent then what u told me to do. maybe if i do i your way i can do it. thanks adam and ryan.
