Default How in the hell do you judge speed for jumps?

So I'm mostly into hitting powder cliffs and drops out of bounds but occasionally make a few laps through the park. I've always had a hard time judging the speed for bigger jumps the first few times and usually overshoot it the first time, and knuckle the second time, which hurts... I've broken a hip after overshooting a booter and dislocated my elbow a couple weeks ago when i cased it. I'd say the jumps range from 25-35 feet from take off to landing.

Btw, when i say overshoot the landing, i mean by like at least 10+ feet... sometimes to flat. i dont get it, maybe i should stick to rocks.
