Download-My-Appsdo you have a video? I'm willing to bet youre doing something with your inside edges in the transition to the jump or your pop timing is off
OxcilicThey're 2013 Amarda T-halls (don't judge).
Follow somebody in who's got the speed dialed.
You might want to adjust your pop, depending on the style of the jump. You say you're popping as hard as you can- but pop can work to limit your forward travel while increasing height. Maybe trying to skim the jump, trading height for distance (i.e. less pop) will help you get to the landing.
FlownOunceI had this same problem when I was first getting into park, what's probably happening is your trying to hard to pop and your just doing it wrong, watch some titorials online and look at the people clearing the jump. There's also the possibility you skis are just messed up. I'm a pretty light guy and hitting 60 footers and clearing them every time I come in good so I wouldn't think weight is your problem.
theabortionatorI mean shawn white was casing the jumps at xgames his first year. Weight definitely makes a difference.
But you can def work your pumping skills and popping skills to get more with less.
