While there's lots of variables I think you're right about having lots of reverse camber between your back foot and the tail making it washout. Like Supra, I'd recommend starting to look at something either flat or cambered in the back. Charlie, Barracuda, Family Tree boards, Hovercraft, etc. It's worth noting that even with the massive nose, the Hovercraft is only set 20mm back. Even the small tail should have plenty of contact with the snow.
