I'm sure there are MANY fine fellas here that will tell you otherwise BUT it THE leading cause of going overboard.

Move forward on the 'high' side so if you fall you'll fall into the boat not out.
Have fun.
I doubt that any of us fine fellows would recommend pissing off your boat, I mean if you piss off your boat it is just going to give you lots of issues, including trying to toss you off the decks and stuff like that, a pissed off boat is not a good thing.
