Default Question about Pop

Hello!

I am beginning to enter the terrain park, and I have a question about popping off of a jump. I am fine with coasting off of jumps, but it doesn't seem like I get nearly as much air as my friends when attempting to pop off the jump.

My friend states he simply jumps at the top as hard as he can, but he is always off balance in the air.

When going off a jump, I flex my knees at the base, and extend my knees and then do a small, controlled jump at the lip, and then suck my knees up? I feel like my form is overall stable, but I am just not getting nearly as much air as my friends.

Thanks for any advice!
