good idea to sleep in it, fortunately here in Japan its pretty reasonable as you know

as for the tail I will go long with the cut as is your suggestion

I am guessing the more I cut out the more float I will get but there must be a trade off with something

loss of control? or is it simple the lack of ability to go switch, which for this board I can live without

proto will be my go to board for riding switch which I am really into when its not too deep
Truck is a ford xr6 turbo.
The only trade off is switch riding ability, you can ride switch when you have to when traversing etc.
Loss of control is exactly the opposite of what you get, the swallow tail adds so much control its not funny, it has to be felt to be believed.
