I ride a higher volume board and like the pulled in tails to compensate for more foam. I started off with IFT M5s in the front and used several rears with no problem in average surf. First time I got into bigger, hollow surf I slid out and ate **** cause the rear was so loose........I used more fin and the board works great on big days now. I put IFT M7s in the front and standard M5s in the rear. I'm 6'1 205 so I dont know if this will help but it's worth a try if you like the board and want to keep it.

If this doesnt work for you one sure fire way to calm down a loose board is add some weight to the rear by adding a 3/4 patch to it. I did this to an extremely loose board and it stablized the rear making it an excellent ride for bigger days.
