    The funny thing is tail shapes have very little to do with surfboard performance. If the tail width is about the same it doesn't really matter much if it's a swallow, bat, squash, diamond etc. 99% of surfers cannot tell the difference.
    Rounded pins will turn faster faster and hold better though because the reduce the overall rail line.
    Quad vs. thruster is a big difference though.
    That was a very odd board Kelly was riding though. It looked like a fun shape almost.

    You'd have to be a pretty good, no make that a very good, surfer to feel the difference with bat tail vs. a shallow swallow tail or even a squash tail.

    The biggest difference a bat tail presents to the avg. surfer is you have those extra points on the tail asking for water leaking dings.

    Cool cat tails / bat tails

    imo that little tweak at the tail offers a SLIGHTLY HIGHER TRACK with respect to pocket surfing
    and its resultant speed…kinda like with a little better bite i can set its track A LITTLE higher.
    kinda/ithink…still, tho, not sure...
