is this the reason for those mud-flaps on the rails of the tail? to strengthen the board? or did i just make that up…
Yeah, many of the team get 4oz. decks which though lightens the board quite a bit is notably weaker. These carbon, or extra 4-6oz. strips on the tail, help protect against cracking. In this particular case, though, he probably had a previous crack or ding and let is go until it basically blew apart.
If you have a specific board model question, please refer to the individual board page and leave your inquiry there. Thank you!
