What I'm gathering is this jump has a bit more transition (curved area) and probably a bit more of a lip.
Lower your speed. Do this as much as necessary to make yourself comfortable with the jump.
There is a movement called compression that involves bending your knees just before the jump and as you are making your way through the transition, gradually rising and straightening out. As you do this, you will want to lean forward a bit to deter the board from slipping from underneath you.
This is more of an approach to a jump with more transition. Your straighter jumps sometimes only require riding off at a faster rate without much compression at all.
