not keeping on the gas long enough is my first guess. another would be that you are letting off the gas on the face of the jump. the four stroke has lots of compression, and when you let off the gas like that it's like you just hit your brake. hold even throttle all the way through the jump. let off in the air of course :

Welcome to ATM!

You may be jsut letting off the throttle a bit. As you approach the ramp just keep a steady thorttle. Start of on smaller jumps and then hit them a bit faster and get used to moving and controlling your bike.

THen have a go at the bigger jumps requiring more speed. Good LUck!

could be a small steep jump to where your front wheel is already in the air when your back wheel gets kicked up and throws you forward

First of all, never let off the gas as you go over the jump. This causes a nose down attitude. Secondly, the jump you are doing could be a "kicker" which means it's steeper at the top, which will cause the rear to kick up. If so, you have to get further back on the bike and gas it harder, timing is critical. Practice on smooth jumps with no lip at the top, stay on the gas, and you should have no probs. If the front gets low, you can gas it in the air, helps a little bit, not a lot. If the front gets high, you can hit the rear brake in the air, which drops the nose some. Practice is the key here to feel out different types of jumps. In no time you'll get the hang of it.
