    Maybe spend some time practicing on tables before going for that double.

    Go faster and close your eyes. And more pads.

    The reflectors are weighing you down.

    Also your chain ring is on backwards.

    Good video here:


    Don't mean to offend w/ the video title.

    You don't really bunny hop off the lip... it's kind of like springing off or flowing w/ the jump. You definitely don't want to lean back like you did.

    At first i would recommend that you get low on the bike and at the top of the jump push of and stand up,
