When you get the pump right, you'll know - it'll just feel faster and smoother. Pumping is all about timing - you want to make yourself 'heavy' by pushing weight through the bike and dropping your heels as you come into a dip, before making yourself 'light' as you come out again.
It takes a bit of practice, but try it out at a local pump track if there's one nearby, or make yourself a set of 'rollers' like Neil did here.
