I had the same problem when I got my jointer. I had worked the tables and fence over so everything was flat, coplanar and square. It made my wood turn into a football. I had never adjusted the knives in the cutterhead. I found that the problem was the knives were set deeper on on end than on the other end. On the next knife it might be the opposite etc. Set the knives to the outfeed table then try it. Your technique is about all that is left.
