Cycle the working leg through a little faster and dorsi flex your foot more, this will take care of that slapping your getting.
Relax.

  Much better!   :highfive:  Now get comfortable with your approach from the same mark, so you can do this instinctively.  Lots of run throughs, spiking the board as you would if were jumping. 

Make sure you dont start out so fast that you are decelerating at the end, start slow enough that its constant acceleration through the board.
Relax.

Thanks a lot, that's what i'm gonna do! Any tips on the technique after the jump, mid-air and landing, something that I can exercise quickly.

 Youll have to video it closer to the pit for me to really tell man.  Next time do one from the full approach, one at the board.
Relax.

Do you have a springboard?  Jumping off a springboard can be really helpful for training mid-air techniques, whether it's hitch-kick or hang the springboard will allow you to get the time in the air to really drill technique.  You can many reps with a short run in to a springboard that replicate the air time you would experience in an all out long jump (which of course you can't get a lot of reps out of in a practice session). 

As far as the technique you choose it's pretty much up to you if you take to the hitch kick stick to it, if it frustrates you then abandon it.  I just pubished a little article regarding the long jump and how largely it's affected by the environment, second link down:

btw, great to see you attempting long jump! It's one of my favorite events (despite the fact I had little success at it) and I hope you success!
