Ok, so because I’m indecisive and want to increase my post count, I’m going to throw out a question to my hordes of loyal readers…
(once you’ve stopped laughing)
I’m making myself another board; a shorter, wider, fuller volumed quad. And here’s a picture…
…thing is, I can’t decide on which tail to give it. As you can see, when I drew up the original plan it had a half-moon, or reverse arc tail. This was because I borrowed (stole) the idea from Proctor’s Lil Rascal II, which looked like it would be really well-suited to the kind of waves I surf most. But now that I’ve actually started shaping the thing, I’ve started to rethink the tail.
What do you think – should I stick with the moon?
Go with a shallower swallow-tail?
or, in a nod to the fish in the board’s name, hack out a deeper swallow?
As you can see, I’ve marked out a couple of even deeper swallow options, but have discounted them because I think they’d just be a bit excessive and would spoil the board’s aesthetics.
So what’s your opinion?
