You are also using a very short board for your weight. This sacrifices a lot of stability. I'd only put you on a 153 if you were riding park all day.
The Crail is supposed to have setback. However, not as much as the set-up by the OP - I believe it is 20mm, while the OP has ~35mm.

Agree that the 153 is pretty short for the OP's weight.
