This is more of a query than a critique, since I'm in no position to give advice. But it doesn't look like you're jumping off your edges to get the rotation. It actually looks more like you're going into a butter and just carrying the rotation into the air. That also appears to be why you're back-seat. Comments from those who know way more about this?
In retrospect, "Let's get the goat drunk"
should have been my cue to leave the party.
