thanks to everyone, especially snowolf's post...
the issue was definitely probably hesitation, not enough speed causing instability as the board slowed and pointed upwards on the ramp, and i think an instinctual twist in the air due to shoulder alignment, fear, etc..
i decided to hit jumps with more speed and focus on keeping my shoulders aligned w/ the board...this has helped greatly
so small/straight air i seem to be able to land now with good consistency...
but what about jumps off of sloped terrain (i.e. wind lips, banks, etc) where you may have to ride with an edge engaged and even need to land on another sloped terrain (either on the same edge or an opposite edge(i.e. a spine)) is there any advice for these types of jumps
it seems like trying to land and get an edge engaged immediately is acceptable for these jumps? or am i wrong?
