    Default Tail guard

    I know of the Powell Peralta Tailbones but I can't any place that carries the 9" ones.

    Do you know where I could find a 9" tail guard? It does not have to be Powell brand

    Thank you

    I'd just make one out of cutting board

    EDIT: Do they really make it a lot harder to ollie?

    Personal responsibility for one's choices is dead and buried, even in something as simple as a plank with four wheels.

    The tail bone will make it harder to ollie. Hard to get good pop off of them. They also can hang up when doing tail stalls and tail slaps. It's been about twenty years since I used one but those were the reasons that I stopped using them.

    So, both of those are busts.
    Skatesonhaight couldn't process the order because it wants you to choose the color, but won't let you. The old School skates won't process orders under $25.

    FYI

    oh thats right,25min.see if maybe a friend needs griptape,bearing or a few little items to get the 25.
    he was only place i found that had the 9 inch tail bone after like 3 hrs searching ,when i placed the order i added griptape a nose bone and rails and lube and got to 25.
    sorry about that man,i should have remembered.
