Get a old handle or a broom stick and tie off about 5-7 feet of rope. Attach a milk jug filled with water to the end of the rope. Twirl in a circle until the centrifugal force lifts the jug off the ground, then stop spinning in a circle and rotate the hand around your body keeping the milk jug off the ground. I hope that made sense and get ready for one hell of a shoulder workout

Put a cinder block on a 15 foot rope and handle. And pass it. Muscle memory!!!!

I come from kiteboarding where you get a bit more slack in the lines when you pass (sometimes) but whenever I go for a 360 behind the boat I always let go too soon and don't grab the handle with the new hand.

I always land properly on my feet, but people on the boat say it looks like I am throwing the handle away!

It really frustrating, but I will give the rope technique a try.

Thanks

i filled a paint can with sand and tied an old handle and length to it and swung it around passing it as close as i can to the small of my back do some squats to and that helped a heap first time out last year after a long winter and its like i never left the water, great way
