It's more forward momentum than altitude. Dive bomb, release the trigger, and glide alittle further, depending on your controls up or down on the stick will make you go higher. Using some of that forward movement to glide up. But not terribly high.

If you dive bomb just enough before you pull up and ascend again, you can actually gain height and speed.

I am just not getting it!

Why do game developers always have to add something like this to game. Is it just to ruin what was a great game for some players.

You don't need to be a master at dive bombing to play this game so how does it ruin it?

Its actually a pretty neat thing to do, and simple with a little practice.

If your lack of diving skills makes you think that it ruins the game then maybe you should just return your copy and practice dive bombing in real life

Here is what works for me:

1. Start your glide and pull back on stick so you are going level.
2. Still holding the stick back pull the dive button and start your dive.
3. Let go of the dive button, still holding the stick back and you will have increased speed and glide upwards now for a bit.
4. As your glide starts to slow down and level off, repeat.

Its really simple once you play around with it a bit. The most difficult part is figuring out how long to hold dive and release. Not long enough and you won't gain any speed or height. Too long and you can end up faceplanting into a street or water while you are leveling off :).
