    You need that second hand on the handle as soon as u can. You likely would have pulled it out if you did

    ditto on that, try keep both hands on the handle, you almost had that, your left arm flinging around doesn't help.

    Initiate the trick sooner after the cut.

    Another thing, your head seems to be following your knees the whole time. You need to spot the landing, and then ideally look for the horizon. Think of it as 2 moves, up then over.

    Lead the rotation with your head, spot the landing, re-grab the handle and it's yours. Everything else was right on for learning gainers - a gentle cut, a bit of slack in the line and a good clean jump before the rotation. Nice!
