that's good advice. also, i agree with snowolf that you have to kinda take each one a bit differently. hips seem to pop you more,so the the faster you're going, and the more air you want, the straighter you want to hit it. really, you can hit a hip almost straight on, and still be able to hit the landing if you simply take off on a bit of an edge. also, i personally try to hit hips similarly to pipes, in that you land slightly on your uphill edge.
