At the moment i am having trouble landing my 360 wake to wake. I read somewhere that i can try and get the handle pass down by doing 360 ollies. Went out the other day and battled away but couldnt get around. Got the handle once but the rest i just sink. Can anyone give me any advice on getting the handle pass? I can land to 3 wake to wake but then i miss the pass and just sink. Any help would be great.
cheers

Yes. Throwing your body will make the handle pass almost impossible & even if you get it, it will look ugly.

Try coming into the the wake with a wider slower cut, and a low body position. Then when you release off the wake there will be less tension on the rope, making it easier to get the handle to your lower back.

This might be a bit of a late post, but how I learnt was from an Instructional Video.

To get the feel of landing and handle pass.

1) Take the handle on land, tie it to a tree or get somebody to hold it, next do the rotation with board off.
2) Take this into the water by doing Bunny hop / Ollie 360's, Take your front fin off your board, as this will be out of the water when riding your natural way anyway. Next do what you have been doing on land putting the handle into the small of your back and grabbing it with your other hand, do a Bunny Hop / Ollie 180 while turning the board pass the handle to your other hand in the small of your back when you land it should spin you round again because you have taken your front fin off.
When you have a good feel for the rope and feel comfortable then take this to the wake.


Hope this helps, it's probably not very clear.. to hot to be thinking at the moment, good luck!
