I had that problem for a long time. I had to move the handle really close to my body before i took off. I guess it gave me a little more room to get pulled without losing the handle eveytime.

Crazy4Christ, like Avyboarder said, You need to keep the handle in closer to your body on takeoff. This will allow for more slack while you rotate in land and that should allow you to take some pressure off your edge when you land. Besides that, it looks good and you should have it soon enough!

You are overrotating the trick, so let the handle out more on the way down.
It also looks like you are taking off early - hold the edge up the wake.
When you land, you are also probably thinking about pushing the board out in front of you to keep from catching the front edge. When you do this, there is too much line tension and you won't be able to hold on. Think about landing balanced over the board and riding with the boat instead of trying to edge out hard away from the boat.
