well, tail shapes have a lot to do with the way a board rides. in this situation, i was trying to figure out if you were looking to buy a gun, which is a pin tail(comes to a point). these hold down in the water making them good for big, fast, hollow waves, but incredibly hard to catch waves on. a squash tail (rounded square) is the average shortboard tail, good all around feel and ride. a round tail like ) is also good all around, more for weight front riders. a swallow tail which is coming back is like a W , having two points. very loose feeling and used on small waves. there tons more you can research if you are interested, ripcurl.com has a good section on tail designs.
good luck on the shopping.
where do you plan on surfing?
