When I hitch a ride with an eagle in Ski Safari, I usually try one of two things: keeping my flight horizontal, so the eagle can take me as far as possible before it poofs away; or directing it up at about a 45-degree angle, increasing my distance both vertically and horizontally, so that when the eagle poofs away I can continue to gain distance while I fall.

I'm not sure, but it feels like I don't maintain my forward momentum while falling as much as I should (or would in a real physics world..), so that's why I go for option 1 sometimes.

So: Which gets me farther? Are there other ways of using eagles that are more efficient that I haven't thought of yet?

I find the most effective way to cover a huge distance with an eagle is to fly in a wave shape. Follow the slopes downwards (watch out for rocks) and pull up at jumps.

More distance go horizontal. More points (backflip, flame on reentry) go with option two 45 deg up.
