Rathy urges you to "avoid flipping too much by not dropping that shoulder and doing a handle-pass scarecrow." Often riders are told to trip their edge hard at the wake, as for a front-roll trick. On the contrary, the edge can't be fully stuffed into the wake without your hips being forced away from the handle, hence making it extremely difficult to get the handle pass. Instead, use an edge that gets you through the top of the wake, but stand hard off your tail, helping you get your shoulders over the top of the rope. Now, as your hips and board start to drift out slightly, you are in control of the handle, and it should feel easy to spin.
