Tail kick is a funny thing ...
If I was to look at the boards that have been modified on the PWA this season (legally, just resanding/filling back to their original designed shape because they've come out of production completely wrong) it's easy to see a lot of boards - Tabou, Fanatic, RRD etc have boards being sanded by their riders and I've failed to ever see a Starboard sanded by any rider ...
Designing a board is one thing... building it is another.
Agree with Remi on all points regarding the tail kick. Easier to just not have it ;-)
