Approach the jump at high speed. As you close to within about 20 feet, lose control and fall forward. Be sure to hit the jump head first, burying yourself down to mid-chest. Optionally bury your arms as well. To properly bone the trick, make your body go rigid so your legs stick straight out for a few seconds before going limp.

Anyway, that's how I've always done it.

I told my kids, "Someday, you'll have kids of your own." One of them said, "So will you."
