usually by the graphics. looking at the graphics, the nose is up. Though if its a true twin then it really diesnt matter.

measure nose and tail dimensions. if they are the same you're good. otherwise nose is always a bit wider than the tail

then probably it's the tail. Bindings holes are either centered on the board (nose to tail) or a bit set-back toward the tail.

stand your board up so you can read the writing on the top sheet (if there is no text there is usually the sizing number ex. 158)

the top is the nose.

Also, it looks like whoever you bought the board from, was regular as well. Look at where the stomp pad is. It's closer to the right foot. That stomp pad sucks too. I have this one and it's awesome!

If what looks like the tail is longer, the bindings may have been wrongly mounted forward of where they're supposed to be. Take them off and look at where the mounting holes are. Mount bindings centered at your stance width.



If that makes sense...

It's a burton dominant (DOM) on the board.......not WOD


You may want to rotate the front foot highback too, looks to be quite a bit off from parallel to the edge, can't really tell from the angle though.
