Which Way Is Right?

Me and my friend have been arguing about the right way to do drops(w/o room to gain speed). I think you are supposed to get as much speed as possible and try to manual off the drop. My friend thinks you are supposed to cat walk off and then level yourself to the landing in the air. Which way is right?

both, the catwalk is called a wheelie drop. and the other one is the one i do all the time unless its a slow drop. and you do so much have to manual as just pop your front tire up.
