Default Falling off the lift

I started snowboarding in Jan. and have been to 6 mountains getting a lot of time snow time. I have been on the lifts since mountain 2, most using the detachable lifts (is that what they are called)...the ones that slow down to unload. I fell off maybe once in the beginning, otherwise, was good. I was using rental beginner Burton Boards. I think they all had stomp pads. Last week I got a killer deal on a 141 Burton Sweet Tooth. It is flat and glassy on the top and no stomp pad. You guessed it, all last weekend at Crotched Mt. and Pats Peak, I fell off EVERY lift. I could not do it. I felt like an idiot. Can I blame the new board?

I will get a stomp pad for sure but, what the heck?
