You are still definitely riding the tail, but not from leaning back too far. What you are doing is squatting on your back leg, and breaking at the waist, which makes you feel like you over your front foot, but most of the pressure/weight is on the back leg. You really need to get your shoulders back behind your hips while remaining centered over your ski. Look at the pic below of Seth Stisher (great coach BTW). He is in a great stacked position. This is what we all should strive for. Practice this by leaning away from the boat on one side (think of pulling out to the left to set up for your gate, but remain leaning) and hold this stacked position for as long as you can, then switch sides. concentrate on keeping your shoulders back, hips up and elbows tucked into the vest.
