A big gap jump that is really kicky or as you say "pushes you really high" you have to pay very close attention to body position. I did this kind of jump this season, first time for me too. You really need proper technique on approach and take off. As you are in the air you need to shift your body weight downward towards the landing. So you don't land in the back seat or ass for easy terms.

Is it the jump in the pic with the "X". If so that looks nasty as there looks like a hump after the transition of the take off ???
