Question Help!

I have been snowboarding for 7 years. I have been riding park for about 2. This season I have been stepping my game up with bigger jumps and jibs. I wouldn't describe myself as good but i can hit 30 footers and down rails comfortably. What is bothering me though is two things. I am from the east coast so not naturally a good jumper. I am currently trying to fix this by spinning more. I can easily flat ground 3 both ways. When it comes to features I end up carving too much and killing all my speed, spinning retartedly fast, and knuckling. I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to get off the lip cleaner and still get good rotation. Also when I land I usually find myself not ready and end up losing speed and hand dragging. Thanks for any tips or help.
