Sounds to me that your right handed. When you are about to take off you are pulling harder with your right and tilting the bike to the left. Keep trying you'll get it..

Same here ... I was trying to improve my poor form.
Here's a website that has some good instruction.
Anyone else find good instructional websites?

I used to have the same problem with tipping to sides and I found it was because I was pulling 'up' too much. I started doing things the way they advise in the 'Ramp Up' or 'Huck' sections on the link from SMJ, where you kind of push the bike out in front of you as the front wheel reaches an edge more so than pull up on it and everything seemed to work out a lot better. Just make sure you keep enough forward momentum going and keep you fingers OFF those brake levers!
