Im still learning myself, but I have landed a few so take it for what its worth.
I do mine off of drop-offs, making it so I dont need too much pop for height. I just apply weight to the tail going into the drop, and at the last second (just before nose hits the drop-off) roll that weight over the nose and follow through with my whole body, starting with dropping my shoulder. As long as you fully commit, you should get enough rotation to have your feet under you even on the smaller drops.
Better advise will probably be along shortly....Lots of knowledge here!
