    Always, bigger concave side=nose. But, if they are the same, usually I ride it if I was reading the board. For instance,

    HABITAT.

    nose is the wider one usually so that makes the tail the thinner one

    Sometimes if you can't tell, look at the graphic and see if you can tell which one is which. That helps me with my Bakers sometimes.

    Sometimes they'll print the graphics backwards though.

    The only way I notice the difference is my trucks are different tensions so when I roll it the other way I notice it heaps.

    the bigger nose lets you do nollie/fakie easier because its out more and wont catch on the ground and stuff.

    nose is big
    tail is small
