Same issue off rollers. I am getting really mad at myself here.
Sounds like a timing issue. You need to pop as your coming off the lip at the last second, like when the lip is between your bindings you should be extended almost completely. Do it too early and your going to go dead in the air for sure. You need to ollie off rollers though but again wait til the last second, popping early is how you get over things with no air and gain speed like in boardercross.
