Extremely rookie question

Hi guys, I just got my first board. It's an Atomic Banger. This is an extremely newbie question, but how do I know which end is the front and which one is the back end?

Also the graphics will be set up so that the graphics are right-side-up when the board is nose-up-tail-down.

The only exception to my suggestion and Mistahtaki's suggestion would be with a true twin, and in that case there is no front and back.

I'm a real NooB, and don't know anything about or even IF this applies to the afore mentioned board, so please forgive me if this is an ignorant question to ask in reply to your statement,.. But aren't there "True Twins" being made now that have asymmetrical side cuts? (different radii for the heel & toe?) In that instance, wouldn't there actually be a front & back to the board?

later edit:
...or does an "Asymmetrical" side cut actually mean it "Isn't" a true twin?
(...Just hoping to pick up and confirm some more knowledge on boards 'n such!)

Seriously?? There's a board out there called an A.S.S. Pickle???? LMAO!!! That's Cool! Hope it's an Awesome Ride with a name like that!
I'm pretty secure in my hetero status, but I'd STILL have to think long & hard about being seen riding an A.S.S pickle!!!

I've never had an ass pickle but I'd guess that the thing is symmetrical in that you just flip it end for end depending on whether you're regular or goofy. Otherwise they'd have to make two versions.

Re: Extremely rookie question

Yeah, the ASS pickle is symetrical length-wise and has a specific heel and toe edge. You then ride it in whichever direction. Demoed one, nice board.

To the OP, a pic would probably help us with your question.

Thanks for the reply guys. I think I know which end is the nose and tail now.

Another question, do I need to wax the board before using it? Or does it come already waxed? It's still sealed in plastic.
