Exclamation which side is the tail

i have a habitat continental if you could look it up on google an tell me it'd be nice the side left of the 'h' has a smaller tail/ nose andon't to the right of the 'h' has a bigger nose/tail is it just prefference or would on way be easier to do trick thanks no picture because computer messed up an im using my wii internet

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 Tail>

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 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
