    just get lots of speed and as you go up the ramp lean back but no to far so that you go off backwards, when you go off the ramp lift the bike up but lift the back up more so that you land on the back wheel, but not to much on the back as it can hurt your wrists from the force. hope that helps

    Roll in at an angle, never straight in. Dip down and pick up your back tire a bit as you go over the lip, you have to visualize this part in your head to make it happen.

    Jump leaning back a little, depending on the type/length of jump you can push forward, lean back more or "pop up" as you come out of the tranny for different effects.
