Default A Noodle Harder to Carve?

I'm riding on a Rossi Trickstik noodle. The board allowed me to quickly learn to link turns and progress quickly . The area where I am struggling now is a carved turn. My tail keeps washing out as I come about 45 degrees to the fall line on any turn other than a very very shallow carve. Washing out is more pronounced on my heal side.

I'm riding +15/-9.
Getting on the edges at the same time
Humping and dumping

Is part of my problem that I am trying to carve a park noodle?

FYI: I'll be demoing NS, ride and other boards this weekend as well as taking a private lesson. I feel fine with my investment in the Rossi since a friend is going to buy it from me for $175
