1. Really try to advance off the wake on this trick. You should get the handle as soon as you leave the wake. If you don’t pull hard enough you will search for the pass throughout the rotation.
2. Try going through all the motions of the handle pass and the upper body turn while standing in the trough next to the wake. Pull hard with two hands at the same time you turn your head and shoulders away from the boat, and bend over. Pass the handle while you have the slack and then release it back to normal. Do this about 10 times in a row and then go back to the trick.
