I learned on a directional in 2000, but when my wife got into kiting more recently after windsurfing on and off for years, she had no luck with a twin tip. She was basically sliding sideways. I borrowed a directional for her, and she was up and riding right away. BUT, it is for sure easier to turn around quickly on a twin tip, so I don't plan to have her on a directional. I think overall as an occasional fair-weather kiter she'll progress faster on a twintip.
If the twin tip feels like it wants to fall off, that might be because your sliding it sideways somewhat. Pretend it is your windsurfer. Turn your hips to face more forward, twist the front foot in the strap so it is angled like on a windsurfer, staighten the front leg and bend the back leg, and it should all come together.
