I wouldn't recommend getting smashed then hucking some jumps, save that for apres after you stomp a trick. Speed will definitely help you go far and bigger, but you need to get more comfortable in the air first, as speed can also be scary. I would suggest learning how to "pop" off jumps instead of just coasting. Popping helps you get a lot more air when changing nothing else (size of jump and speed). Crouch down, bending your knees when going up the jump and just as you're about to clear the lip, "pop" by pushing off the lip, extending your legs. When you're in the air, be sure to stay compact (centered and knees bent).
Ollieing will also help you get more air, but I would suggest trying this off of cat tracks and side hits first.
