im just starting to hit medium-large jumps. im not doing any tricks yet, just trying to get used to the feeling and get a lot of air.

im doing fine, but i read someone say that its important not to let yourself be "thrown" by the jump. i think they said you need to push off or something right before you launch. i know its important to suck your knees in as well. any advice on this?

thanks for the help

When you're ready to hit the jump "squat" down and pop off the lip with both feet.
In all honesty, doing a grab, like an indy (Grab your board between your bindings on the toe-edge with your rear hand) Or a boned tail-ish grab. (Reach for the tail with your back hand but poke your back foot a bit like a shiffty and grab near the tail.)
Keep your knee's up on a straight air isn't required, but it does give your more control and less "chicken-kicking"
