Default Help with jumps

Here is a short clip of my first attempts at jumping. I would like to iron out some of my bad habits. I've been following slyders jumping thread. I've also watched the snowboarding addiction intro to jumping and Snowwolfs jumping vid.

From what I see I need to work on:
1)Hitting the jumps with a little more speed
2)Hitting the jumps in a more athletic position
3)Pop off the lip
4)The times I did pull my legs up, I think i miss timed my landing and still landed straight legged.
5)quite my upper body.

It appears I need to work on all of ATML. Do you guys see anything else that I need to work on? Does it appear my shoulders are open or closed?
