Are you talking about just riding off the end of stairs and skipping them and landing flat or landing on another set of stairs below the top set?

either way I like to bunny hop things...give me more control in the air.

If they're not a really long set, you can compromise and manual down the steps also. This can come in handy when there are several sets a row that cannot be gapped for whatever reasons... But I prefer to just launch/hop the entire set...
