i have never ridden pipe so i might be wrong, but you want to pump as much as you can. possibly more speed coming in or a higher drop off the wall. that and more distance down the pipe and less vertical. thats all can think of

Its kinda hard to explain, your going to want to get about 3/4 of the way up the side then drop in. Pump as hard as you can, its all about the pump, just watch T-hall pipe videos and try to imitate him. Thats how I learned to ski pipe, also 22ft is quite large, try a smaller pipe might help get your form down.
