But in all seriousness, two things that stand out to me/you might want to try:

1. Turn your shoulders more when loading up to the trophy pose
2. If you crank it up, you may end up hitting yourself in the leg; f you're hitting a kick serve, follow through more to the right of your body, and if slice/flat, more to the left. Either way, you'll avoid your legs

That being said, I really like how fluid and easy it looks, and you seem to get a lot of power from it, not to mention that you seem to know where you want to place it. Very nice serve!
hehe :P

1. hmm...will need to look into this - thanks
2. I tried to serve first serves more here...My kick/2nd serve is generally "better" or more consistent than my first. My first serves is not as good as I want it to be. Not to make any excuses, but the racket I'm serving with, does not feel great at point of contact. Too much flex and too little power - lead helps, but will be serving with new rackets in a month or so and also hopefully newer balls.

Thanks for the compliments dude
