Two things can cause your tail to slide out:
1) Putting your weight on your back foot. The end of the board with the most weight on it wants to go down the hill first.
2) Not using your back foot to help with edging. When you go heelside, you pull up your toes. If you are just pulling up your toes on your front foot, the back of the board will have less edge and will slide.
Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
