I just know, that it is called KGB and I saw it in the Powerzone 2 video. A handle pass upside down. How do I learn that thing and what exactly do I have to do?

Find a cable wakeboard park and ride you ass off all day every day for a year or two and then maybe you will be able to land a KGB. Its essentially a back roll thrown NO WHIP without using the kite. You go into a back roll. Stop your rotation in the middle of your roll turning your head back the opposite direction and passing the handle. In other words. Its F#%& HARD MAN. The only rider doing them is Lou Wainman. The guy you saw in the video. Lou used to wakeboard a lot. Hope I cleared things up for you.
