This video seems highly relevant to the situation. Its an article on braking technique for bicycle police, which would be similar to your riding style.

And yes, it's entirely possible to endo wet rim brakes. I've personally done it when I suddenly grabbed the lever to talk to a friend and I wasn't paying attention. Next thing I knew I was going OTB at low speed.

Your suspension should not be running out of travel from braking, if it is, you have the suspension set WAY too soft. A soft suspension will also amplify brake dive and make it easier to go over. If the bike has an air fork, you may want to consider upping the pressure.
