Justin,

Regardless the slope of the jump, you should try and pop up into a level spin, its natural to end up in the backseat when you rotate if you dont get this tactic.

Try focusing on popping up off the lip and getting flat, really andytime you jump, straight or spin you want to do this. You can shift your weight a bit in the air for your landing easily, but if you pop off at an angle its tough to get it back. work on getting your knees into your chest too, that helps me get flat and balanced.
