To fully distract enemies with rocks, one must throw it nearby them and allow them to investigate the location of where the rock landed. You must then allow them to look around and return to where they were before the distraction was created, and once they do, it'll count as a "full distract". It'd help if you marked your enemies before attempting to distract them first because you can analyse what they are doing, as well as know when they have completed their survey and started to return to their original patrol route. Repeat 24 more times across your vacation on Rook Island.

Good luck.
Please tell me why you negative voted because currently, this is the only guide that has explained what full distraction is, no offense (I will change the wording if you can't understand).

*EDIT* Thanks Rustybroom and Amatorskii (via comments); it seems to be that enemies can actually be distracted more than 3 times, so it is possible to grind this achievement on just one enemy.

*EDIT #2* It'd be nice if someone could confirm this statement, but it is very possible for a "full distract" to count when the distracted target is speaking after the rock was thrown (Pay homage to I SoLuS I for the info).

End game solution:
Go to the air base (2nd island). Southern part is full of trees for cover. Move alongside the southern wall and throw rocks. As there are lots of privateers, it wont take much time.
I won the achievement this way.
