1. Begin with a progressive approach to the wake. Edge off the top, standing as tall as possible.
2. With a proper edge, your board will pop off the wake with little effort. Make sure you take the trick up off the wake before initiating your rotation – this will help you maintain your axis and generate maximum height and distance.
3. start your rotation by pulling the handle to your rear hip at the peak of the jump. Remember: Pull to initiate the rotation. Do not spin for the handle! Keep your head up by looking at the horizon, not down, during the rotation.
4. The further into your hip you pull the handle, the further you will rotate. Pulling the handle to your rear hip will put you in perfect position for a 180. Pulling the handle through the small of your back to your lead hip will increase the degree of rotation for a 360.
5. Look at the horizon which your shoulders will be facing at the end of the trick. This will create a neutral balance in your body position for a perfect landing.
6. Bend your knees on the landing and continue looking, and riding, toward the shoreline.
