Some advice Snowolf gave me when he was around... You should be crouched lowest just as you come to the transition leading up to the jump (the point where the slope transitions from downhill to uphill). As you go up the ramp, you smoothly straighten up, timing it so that you're just reaching the "pop" as you are hitting the lip of the jump. When I tried this, it was almost effortless compared to what I was doing before when trying to get enough air. This also works BTW on quarter-pipe and similar maneuvers. I think the point is don't try to get all your pop at the very last second.
Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
