what's the tip you feel to share? taking off grabbing the rails or not? angling the board or not? taking off in the lip/foam or shoulder?

Taking a guess based on what you typed, I image that when you catch a wave you feel like you are screaming down the wave and have a problem standing up because of the wobbles the speed creates. This happens when you don't get enough paddle speed going, thus you are dropping in instead of glidding into the wave. So, concentrate on paddling your arse off, pick up your head, and stand up as the board picks up speed instead of after it already launches you down the line.
So, again, in simple terms, stop dropping into a wave and paddle into it.

Being scared, I start to paddle later than i should, so when the wave picks me up, I am on the steepest part of the wave instead of being where I can have the board gently slide on it. The point is that my fear makes me start paddle later because I could receive the lip on the head if I move too much forward
