The 2012 Neckbeard tail was taken directly from Dane's hand-drawn template. Dane kept the overall generous plan-shape to provide a skatey feel but the tail refinement allows for slightly more back foot sensitivity. Light single concave and vee out the back, increased rail-to-rail transition and wider through the nose and tail.
If you are a fan of the Dumpster Diver, then definitely grow out your Neck Beard. You can ride your new 2012 Neck Beard Squash in anything from knee to just over head high. Order yours 4 to 6 inches shorter than your height.
