On downhills, start applying it before you need it and are still in control. Then if you start getting ahead of the unicycle, you can ease up on the brake and get behind the uni again.

This is not the same as bicycle braking technique, where it is possible to get back under control with the brake.

My first use of the brake on a 36" launched me through the air too -- bicycling habit!
