every time i go for one, when i land on the rail i either slide off immediately or fall backwards. any tips to help me stay balanced? sorry i had bad wording. its definitely fs board because my back is facing downhill on the rail.

are you oll'ing onto the rail? Or a boardslide from a 50/50, sounds like olling...
make sure your are perpendicular to the rail. If it's a down rail have your body in a slight downward position. As you said you "fall backwards" immediately I think your body positions is leaning the opposite way of the feature and the board is coming out from under you.
i just perfected these, so heres what i have learned:
while learning, slide half of the box or rail as a 50 50, ant then slowly turn your board into the frontboard position. doing this slowly will help you get the feel of weight disribution and balance while sliding. just keeping turning earlier and earlier until you can slide the whole thing in a perfect frontboard.
