Default Slam Jibe

Hi Roger !
I am trying to learn the slam jibe.
I 've reading about this move, but there seem to be two diff approaches. One is to sheet in in the beginning, and the other is to sheet out slightly... That would be my first question, wich one is the right one ?
Second, when I initiate the jibe, I try to loose some speed by heading upwind and sheet out a little bit, then I place my back foot behind the back strap and on the inside rail, and through my body to the inside of the turn ... but the rail, in stead of sinking smoothly, makes the board to jump/bounce and that prevents me from doing the slashy carve I am suppouse to.
Thanks in advance !
