No. Your going way to slow on first part where you load the tail. It is all one smooth motion.

Is loading the tail when i start lifting my front foot, or when i do the rock forward to backward?

Besides working on my flow, and bending the knees more is there anything else i should work on?

Try to smooth them out. Bend your knees, pick up the nose, then spring off the tail in one motion.

It looks like you are bringing your nose up, then bending your knees to pop off of your tail.

i looks more like you're jumping more than popping it. Best way to learn is to learn on a skateboard.
