Speed is probably the trickiest part of hitting bigger jumps but in my opinion coming in hotter is way better than coming in slow. You're first and second time you might die crashing but when you finally land it its so awesome. And when you get better you land it your first time fairly often.
I forgot to mention your tounge is gonna be wagging back in forth in your mouth like fucking crazy when you are screaming bloody murder and your arms are gonna be waving all over. That was me when I landed my first big jump anyway.
