So I find this thread interesting because most guys I know in the water around here use the tail pad on their shortboards. Also interesting is that no one has mentioned anything about the relation between the tail pad and duck diving the board.. I like having the pad on my shorter boards (5'4" and 5'11") because it helps me kick the tail down under the wave when I duck dive. Does anyone else do this? im curious now...

i have a bunch of boards coming, 5 to be exact, so i'm kind of up in the air about whether to throw pads on them or not. i know i can always rip them off, but that's a huge PITA & i'd rather not drop the coin if i can avoid it. fiancee's already not particularly stoked about 5 brand spankin' new boards arriving mere months before the wedding.
