How do you fond the rounded squares as quads? I have a round tail quad that works insane but never been sure how a rounded square would work as a quad. Round tails and quads work so well together

The tails on those boards are actually more round/thumb tail. The pic kinda has distorted it because you can't pickup the tail block as its a darker colour.

I don't think I've ever ridden a square tailed quad.

EPS. I cut them from a big slab I've got. No stringer.

Haven't been doing a lot of boards lately, with a few health issues and other stuff going on. But just finished this one. It's a pretty standard 5'11" HP.Image
