Sorry if this sounds simple and dumb, but one thing I did not do early on was take enough time to line my board up with the ramp before off loading. I'm goofy and I found that if I twisted my body to the left and kind of hang my right butt cheek off the chair, my board lined up perfectly and I just leaned forward and rode off. I find that if you don't do this and your board is not straight, you'll have to make early corrections before you're stable and eat it often.
I made sure my sister did this her first time on the lift and she was real smooth.
Oh, and I'm with seriouscat. I like sitting on the far left so that my board doesn't get in anyone's way.
