my bet is that you're positioned incorrectly on the bike. you shouldn't be all tucked back when you hit jumps. watch a video of people jumping...

im sorry i dont know something....and am asking a question bout it
the problem isn't in your question but in the language you use. spell words out completely ("ne"), don't neglect the apostrophes, etc. proper english is easier to read.

(do note that capitalization is strictly optional. :D)

yeh no offence, but when you asked people for there help make sure that they can understand what your saying man thats just as important as asking the question and us answering the question.

ohh just practice practice practice. the feel for it will come naturally and dont sit way back on the bike. let the bike do its thing man and youll be money.

Are you riding a full suspension bike? When I got a new shock on my bike I noticed the same thing - I seemed to nosedive onto the other side of the jump. The rebound was too fast. Once I slowed down the rebound, I didn't feel like I was getting bucked off.

Just a thought.

Shock set up will have a lot to do with it also. What bike and rear shock are you running?
