I take it you mean the nose and the tail not the actual base of the board. Swallow Tails have had pointed noses since the worm turned. My Neversummer Summit has a semi pointed nose, more like a missile. No real advantages to the pointed nose and tail and the board is more susceptible to damage. Nothing really ground breaking about that shape what so ever. I also doubt it would go anywhere as you are using camber and rocker is all the rage these days.
