Tail sliding out when flat straightline

What would cause my board tail to slide out heel side when it's flat base straightline, like when I come to the bottom of a run. Is it normal or should I be just keeping a slight edge at all times?

Your weight is too far back.

Upper body rotation?
Try putting your rear hand near your bum and your front hand near your dick.
Lol @ that description but it will keep you pointed straight rather than opening up your shoulders

It's a rossignol Taipan 2011. Bindings 15 -15, highbacks 3.
I just saw a post about adjusting the highbacks to be parallel with the board edge so I just adjusted that now.

I don't know man, there's kids on the hill. I don't want to be labeled as the "don't go near that guy, kids."
