Turn your head more, carve more, and practise doing highr hops.

Okay try and get fakies well while you do this, it seem like you are landing with too much pedal pressure causing you to just stall once you land, try a nose pivot 180 and fakie out of that. it can help alot. Also make sure you arent doing the whole double tire hop as it makes it harder in the long run and the short run aswell.

Another thing that can help if you're stalling out is turning your bars once you're in the hop. So if you spin to the right, once you are in the hop, turn your bars a bit to the left (vice versa if you spin left). This helps especially when you are learning at first and not getting a full rotation because the when you land, the momentum and direction of your front tire will help push you back to fakie (for lack of a better description). Remember to turn your bars back to the right (left if you spin left) once you land and also apply pedal pressure to get out of fakie.

If you're not fck-footed/goofy-footed, use your back foot to help you kick the bike into the spin. This helps a lot, but people tend to do the unclean two tire hop, so try to do a bunnyhop and not just a hop 180. Bunnyhop, turn bars to spinning direction, start picking up back, get to 45-90 degrees and lift up the whole back end, level out, land rear tire first always, turn bars in rollout direction, fakie.

Try shifting your weight to compensate. Nice work on getting the spin so far.

Edit: No sense in me making an additional post. The other thing to pay attention to is how far you are leaning back when you land. Too far back and it will definitely make you fall to your side because you will have a lot of momentum spinning you. If you are too far forward, you'll have too much pedal pressure and it will likely cause you to drop your front foot.

Focus on a good even carve, pulling up as high as you can and whipping your head as fast as you can to your left/right do not halfass it, what helped me is, I'd get the idea of me doing a hop 540 so I get the motion of spinning as fast as i can.

Land with your weight over the back of the bike and with your bars turned the way you fakie that way you can get out faster
