This is defiantly the coolest DIY project I have ever seen!
But on the side.. what is advantage of the tail split like that on the board?

Less surface area in the rear, causes the tail to sink.

Which in turn, causes the nose to "float" better.

Ive done a fair bit of testing now and I believe that for low angle terrain in powder swallowtails are great, but when its steep I prefer a normal tail.

Sounds resonable, from a strictly physical point view.

ETM, I think I speak for the most of us when I say that we'd love to read more about your experiences with the different boards, like short reviews of how they've performed. I know you've written some but we need MORE. Also, it'd be cool if you posted the stats of your boards with the pics when you produce new ones.

EDIT: Omg, is that a 4x4 pattern I see? How vintage.
