Default trying to learn to windsurf - not fall!

I have been trying to learn to windsurf. I took a 3 hour lesson and it seemed so easy at the time. Now I have been trying on my own and can uphaul the sail (with effort) but as soon as I try to take hold of the boom and start moving, I am overpowered and FALL! I spend all my time getting back on the board, uphauling and then falling again. The instructor told me it is about balance, not strength, but I am starting to wonder. When he was teaching me, he was on the board at the same time (on the other side of the sail). I am thinking maybe he was counter balancing the sail for me? I donít want to spend hundreds of dollars on more lessons. Any tips on getting moving WITHOUT falling after uphauling?
