Default Keeping the board straight

Ok so I went out this past weekend and let go of my fears of going fast! I tried to keep the board flat when I could to pick up speed.

I would like to know should keeping the board straight downhill be a slight struggle?

I had to lean back towards the tail, put pressure on the balls of my back foot just to fight what seemed to be the natural movement of the board. It felt like my board wanted to not be directly under my body.

During my run I changed my angles from +21/-21 to +19/-19 and it seemed to keep my board more straight downhill.

Should I keep playing with angles until I find the right one where I don't have to fight my board or go for what feel natural to my feet and use foot control to keep my board straight?
