Skipping I think is a result of too much pressure and/or not enough water/slurry. That said I've run into stones where that occurs much more readily than others, usually finer synthetics, that therefore take more finesse and practice to use on a wide bevel.

Even with a layer of slurry? Do you get black spots where it skips? Swarf might build up into the surface. Take it slowly, make slurry, add water as needed. Clean any spots. Ease the pressure if you can't control everything at once. As the grit gets higher, developing the edge gets much more difficult than people imagine, but also dealing with polishing reveals a lot of consistency problems and surface management (there isn't really a one fix all type of thing here, it's experience and the capacity to adjust or compensate for various things).
The main problem I see is that you are learning on a good knife, that might be "damaged" a bit in the process.

I will add one thing here...while the knife skips/ shutters when moving back and forth on the stone it feels like suction not so much digging in like when you flatten the stone with your leveling plate...did that make sense...it doesnt seem to happen with my yanagiba whichis a wide bevel knife...there seens to be some correlation to the weight of the knife as well...

Would you be willing to upload a video where we can see the knife skipping, just so that we can see what is happening?

Seems like there are more things going on. Pretty flat bevel, drying slurry and surface, still too much pressure for these conditions.
Same as before, slurry layer, water, take it slow, ease the pressure (you consider that there is no pressure way to late, by that time, it will stick on its own).

Not sure how you are setup. In my kitchen I have a cabinet above my kitchen counter. I place my phone in the cabinet poking out, facing down. Like this

If you have a laptop with a camera, you can record using that. (I notice you said you only have a phone, though.)

Just wanted to say that because I spent a while propping my phone up in weird ways before realizing I could just put my computer on the counter.

Youtube. You can set privacy settings so it's not searchable if you wanted to.

Drag and drop the movie into Google Photos. It will upload and you can share a link after. I don't see anything faster than that, if you have an account.

If you have the movie on a PC already, drag it into the browser.

If it's just on your phone, from within the app (Google Photos), you will have a "cloud" with an arrow in the right upper corner. Or you could just create a link (lower left corner, the 3 dots connected by lines) and it will be uploaded by default.

Just touch one of them. You should see the following.
Click that and Create link. Should be somewhere in the lower left corner.

*This is already in the cloud, so no cloud icon available.
