I'm loving this game but there's a certain mechanic I've always seemed to struggle with and it involves being in the air. This became particularly troubling on level 6-1. Basically I hold X and up to hit the gates in the air, but it automatically brings you back down after a while and then afterwards I'm unable to get back up again. This seems to happen a lot with me and I figure I must be doing something wrong, but I have no idea what. Any advice?

There's a double jump mechanic that can be utilized. If you're in the air and you hit another pad while still holding Up, you'll be able to fly longer. In 6-1, if you use this technique, you'll be able to get the airborne rings in the very beginning of the stage.

Also, in order to stay airborne after a turn, you need to do a perfect turn.
