Remember the same technique as any other jump, where you bend your knees as you approach the jump and slowly extend your legs, pushing against the jump as you go up the takeoff ramp.
You're getting kicked by the jump because you're not fighting the compression enough. If a jump is more kicky, you need to push harder against it as you go up the curve of the jump, otherwise you'll end up getting thrown off balance and compressed by the curve.
Also, if you aren't already doing it, make sure you pop with both feet as you leave the jump.
