its really hard to tell from that video because its so far away and i cant see your take off but to me it seems like you arent spotting you landing enough. at the end it looks like you are still looking uphill somewhat and that could be whats causing you not to come around all the way.

the spin it self looks pretty solid from what i could tell though and you just need to work on being more aware while in the air so you can bring yourself around.

like wolf, out of my ability but some points I noticed, not sure on relevance but will make them anyway to try to help.
It looked like you barely cleared the knuckle. Then you landed nearly perpendicular to the hill. Just as you cleared the knuckle you whipped open your left arm into the air seemed to completely stop your rotation.

Good luck with it, no way I"m trying that.....

I out of my league as well.. but Yeah I was going to point out that it seemed like you were still looking up hill on the landing. Which Cro already did.. and Snowolf is right.. Cro is the shit. If you want want freestyle advice he's your man for sure.

To legit to quit.
On the move this season.
