Before trying a Tantrum to Blind you should be able to do the following things:

Approach the wake with enough speed to take your Tantrum wake-to-wake. You don't want to go real far, it's
easiest to learn this trick landing on the downside of the wake.
Stand tall and wait for your pop so you get maximum height. Keep the handle in tight to your body as you
take off, you'll need it in close to your body for the whole trick.
As you take off, you want your back to face a bit more towards the boat then on your normal tantrum. This
helps you get a little less rope tension when you land.
You don't want to spin to blind too early, so wait until you're on your way down and you've spotted your landing
before starting to turn. Keep the rope in tight to your body to make it easier to spin to blind.
As you land, keep the rope tight in the small of your back, and try to land with more weight on your
toes then your heels. Get your shoulders over the toeside edge of your board, and pass the handle after you've landed
