If you are doing a straight air and not clearing the knuckle, you simply don't have enough speed. If you are clearing the jump when straight airing but not clearing when you spin with the same speed, you are probably pre-spinning. Pre-spinning is when you start spinning before you have popped of the lip causing you to scrub of some speed, leading to a knuckle sandwich.
