I'm definitely no expert but I have been told that when you hit the jump, the tow bar should be at your hip and then when you are in the air you pull it away from your hip. I believe it loads the force of the rope towards your center of gravity rather than the top half which would pull you over forward. Just my 2 cents. Sounds like a ton of fun. I am jealous.
