Default Parallel with landing slope?

I've noticed that with almost every landing (big kickers, after steep boxes, some natural hits) i'm landing very tail heavy. To the point where i can't stick some landings.

_____/\__
.................\
..................\

It's an exaggerated kicker, but when i take off (green) my nose is pointing up, in the air it's still pointing up, and it's still pointing that way on the landing. What should i try to do to get parallel with the landing (red) and actually land some of these tricks?

lean forward more. You can also tuck your back leg up slightly higher than your front leg. this puts the board at the angle of the slope

You only want to land tail heavy on pow pow so yo nose won't dive doo. When you jump pull yo back foot up and you'll look way mo style'ly.
