As Chuck Glider says, "Generally solo hand propping is done from behind the prop with controls within reach"

At Brown's Seaplane establishment, Winter Haven Florida, the J3 Cub prop was swung FROM BEHIND by the instructor who was standing on the float, holding onto the struts.
On a strong wind day with ripples or waves,this could have been even more interesting....

They sent me solo - if I bought my own seaplane to fly solo in. That didn't happen.
