ok well I'm working on decks and don't know whether to keep my current shape or to go for this new shape I made (same mold) but has longer and wider kicks? If you could help me out I'll try and post some pics later awkward

i think it depends on the kick angle
higher kicks can be longer, but lower kicks can be shorter because it's hard to pop a board with long, low kicks and hard to comfortably control one with short high kicks

here are some pics i took those are the two decks side by side, new shape on the right, old on the left thats the new shape with longer kicks thats the old shape and i dont know whether you guys like the short tail or not but i like that shape more. Maybe the old happe with wider kicks or should i just keep the old shape? Remember its the same mold.

i think your old shape looks nice and more proportional already.

digging the short kicks, it allows for more pop imo

I dig the short kicks. I'm not really a fan of longer kicks except in the nose.
