Stay flat, don't carve anywhere near the ramp, if possible find a drop in where you can 100% straightline it and fight all urges to carve/speedcheck. Just stay nice and straight, don't open up your shoulders on the ramp or anything, stay bent at the knees and gently pop, no need to pop hard at first you can work on that later. Try and suck you knees up and if you can, grab your board between your feet and hold it.

100% do not carve on or near the ramp if your doing a straight air.
