Try making the line tighter. Also try jumping closer to one of the anchors.

This helps any jumping tricks, but beyond that I think it's more practice than anything. Keep trying, and you'll get more and more used to the feel of it. :)

The hard part is the mental issue of lifting your feet up when bouncing. Lift & tuck feet on the upswing, drop them down (usually sideways) for landing.

Practice, practice, practice.
