Chain Slipping

hey guys, just need a bit of advice...

i got a pretty sweet set up but its pissing me off, the chain keeps slipping if i pedal to hard ot pedal while going off a curb/jump, so im wondering what i should do about it... i tried taking a link out of teh chain to keep it tight, but that didnt help much, any body know of any products i can use I.E a chain tentioner.

i got a 3x9 speed gear set up. Shimano Deore R-Mech Rapid Rise M530 front mech, and some sort of SR Suntour front mech, not sure which one... but basically the chain keeps comming off on the front rail...

any help please...

I think your derailler needs adjusting. Take it into the bike shop or adjust it yourself. It could also be bent.
