My observation is that on the landing you are breaking at the waist and not bending your knees to absorb the landing. Arms kinda seem like they are flailing excessively during landing as well.
good observation! i am working on that. i think i'm too off balance when i land causing my upper body to lean forward instead of absorbing the landing straight up and down with my knees.

It's hard to see the lip of the jump in those conditions. But if you look at 7 seconds, your board is parallel to the lip of the jump before you even leave the jump. You are starting your spin way to early.
Also look at 9 second, your right arm completely stops rotating. Hence slowing down your full rotation.
You may want to try and "pre-load" your arms to help swing them around, it seems like you have NO rotation of the arms, just your waist

But coming along, way better than I can do
