Default

it could also be in your shoulder alignment. if you ride with your shoulders "open", or so that your whole upper body is facing down hill, as opposed to keeping them "closed" then it'll be really hard to keep your weight centered.

you want to try and focus on keeping your shoulders, hips, and ankles stacked over each other with your knees bent while also keeping your shoulders aligned with your board.

here's a picture of a proper stance
