hopping seat out to rubber

I’m learning to hop seat out to rubber and have a problem with the landing on higher obstacles. The wheel is always too far in front of me when I land and I just fall on my but. Is there a solution to this or do I just have to keep practicing? By the way, I’m hopping to the left holding the seat with my right hand in case that makes a difference. Thanks for any advice.

If you have the frame and seat straight up, then don’t. Tilt it foreward and lean more foreward to get your weight straight over the center of the wheel. Then after you jump, the wheel will stay under you.
