RE: Just one more thing...evo deck.
I have only been sailing for around a year and I got waterstarting in the first month or two... once you get that, you won't really want to uphaul. but my trick if I do have to uphaul, is to put your hands on the board, kick up, than move your hands to counterbalance you lifting your back knee on to the footpad. than you get up normally...
best tip I can give you... I still fall a lot on carve jibe attempts.
