I keep my helmet over the cross bar when I jump. I'd be careful leaning back AND holding the throttle on the face of the jump. Try a "normal" standing position first while holding constant throttle and see how the bike "flies", then adjust your body position.

There have been several threads on this subject if you can find them but here are a few tips.
- Keep the gas on when leaving the take off ramp. It will shoot you higher but the front wheel will stay up.
- Get over the rear fender more to help keep the rear end down.
