Neat little entry. There are lots of missing frames so it's not very smooth but I like what's there, though I feel like the shapes on the characters could be stronger. The part where the man slides backwards doesn't fit the audio either, and he slides too smoothly with no ease out, which would've conveyed skidding to a stop. needs work but it's got potential.
The main character seemingly 'floats' across one portion of the ground, the blue character also wobbles significantly in sections - good idea, the techniques however need a lot of tightening.
In spite of it being on 4s and 6s, it's a good start! Right now I feel that your drawing is probably holding you back. The characters go very flat at times, and I'd wager it's because you're not working from the inside out. If you can build your characters with shape and form from the inside and lay the details and final lines over top you'll have much more success in keeping things consistent and also feeling very solid. Good luck with future entries!
You need way more fluid poses in this animation. Also, what is going on from frames 131-198?
