thinking out loud:
Keep in mind the tote and plane is designed to have downward pressure, even from the back of the plane.
the board is less then 2” long, but I don’t know where you stand. Try a step forward.
Also try holding the plane different. Instead of holding the knob, hold your left hand over the cap. If it solves the problem (or changes it in any way) you know it has to do with your technique.

And sometimes practice just makes these issues go away and you never know why.
