Yo there young ripper, basically you have everything dialed in. Your edge and pop off the wake look about perfect. The only thing that I can see that is preventing you from riding away is that you are being kind lazy with the handle pass. By this I mean you are not giving the handle a strong tug and are instead trying to rotate your body around the handle. This is causing you to get hung up and finish the rotation too late.

Take a look at my profile pic, its a Heel Nose 3. You can see how long I've waited to rotate, this pic is taken right as I make the tug. If you have a strong pull you can grab and really stall the rotation, then snap the handle hard.

One thing that helped me when I was doing what you are doing (& helped grab it too). When you are learning it bring your knees up and pass it under your butt. Lead the rotation with your hips.

Good luck.

I agree with Big Heavy, the only thing I would add is to remember to keep those knees soft on that looked like you bounced a little bit throwing you out the front when you came down from the bounce.

BTW, how are your basics? TS, etc? The only reason I asked is because you did two HS tricks, both times rolling over the TS wake.

Make sure you're looking behind you at the horizon when you pass the handle, also you may wanna try staying looking at the horizon (behind you) while you land. I was falling the same way, kinda, and this helped me loads
