Guys, I'm new in MX and I want to show you some pics of mine, I know that front is sometimes getting higher or lower than it should be, I can get rid of that with practise and better gas control..

But my real question is: "Is there something wrong with my technique?"

Here's a start.

1) Maintain a more neutral position on the bike, allow it to rotate under you on the jump face.
2) Maintain steady throttle up the face.

Looks like you are a bit too far back. Try to be far enough forward that you could look down and see the front of your number plate (not read it, just see it). In the pics, if you were to look down you would see the back half of the fuel tank. As a bonus, it might help get the front wheel down a bit.

I do see that you have something that very few riders possess, elbow pads;)

looking better than when I first started jumping. I would either be as close as physically possible to endoing without actually doing it or almost fall off the back. Mine was not my body position though. I would either gun it or let off the throttle on the face of the jump.

Try bringing your elbows higher up; it will help you attain a better position on the bike.
