they are all crap

na i have an ltd kingy with the concave and a standard rolled bat and its hawt sex

gullwings are the closest relative to a cresent, square are like the hubb tail that have a small bites that usually coincide with the channels and more often than not they are in-line with the pegs and a gullwing flows and protrudes.

"bats are faster due to more trailing surface area/bouyancy" but you can sit higher on the wave on a cres thus generating more speed, and if you rely on a bat to release your tail you should by a cresent so you can learn to do it correctly

Thanks for your help, i know the different shape and such, but would a gullwing still be looser then a clipped cress but held more then a bat round? Which of the 3 bats would hold the most but still be a tad looser then a cressie.

The rolling and square bats will be virtually impossible for you to get Rbowl and Womp barrels
But the Gullwing is perfect for those afterschool special out suckrock :wink: :lol: :lol:

bump the thread up.

 Is This a Question?

  A college student in a philosophy class was taking his first examination. On the paper there was a single line which simply said: "Is this a question? " The student wrote: "If that is a question, then this is an answer." The students received an "A" on the exam.
