There is a thread about tail clips. I am in the opinion that they are a must have mod to your skins. Find the post and check out the way Ctowels rigged his, I followed his lead and they work great.

I got the BD STS skins and just put a wood screw at the top of my tail and it makes the perfect rat-tail.

That looks great except my skins are long enough to go the end of the board...probably like 6 inches shorter???

if your skins are too short, make them longer ... take a sewing machine and some stuff from an awning from a truck (sorry, I can't explain it better ...) ... and be creative. :wink:

something like this ...
