Default Cymbal stand help

I have one of those SP boom stands with only a 16" PST5 Crash on it and the stand keeps moving away from my kit when I hit the crash. Does anyone have any idea why it keeps moving?

Five things come to mind, the weight of the stand, the balance of the stand (it could be walking from a balance shift when hitting the cymbal), the feet attached to the stand, the surface that the stand is sitting on and the way you're hitting the cymbal (back to the balance issue).

Leg placement could be a factor. Place it so that you have one leg directly under the boom for weight support, and then the other two legs will be positioned best for keeping it from sliding.

It is the stand in front of the snare. Sorry, for the bad quality I used my ipod.
