I got a flatboard. I want a kicktail. I don’t have a press or heat things coz I’m a noob. Halp.
@quanze If you don’t have any woodworking tools, I can’t think of a cheaper or easier way than buying a new deck with a kick tail.
Nice find Jinra.
An easy change to get kicktail, but it won’t be quite the same as a real kick deck. heavier, and you’ll need some extra long bolts for the rear truck. No big deal and definitely worth a shot. If you have a $30 ebay blank, i don’t know if i’d spend $20 to add a kicktail. If you have a nice deck it might make more sense.
I personally would rather put the $20 towards a new kick deck and call it done. One of my favorites is the Omen Sugar - sweet deck.
Agreed, Better to just buy a deck with a kicktail than modify one. $20 isn’t bad to add a kicktail, but it’s not going to be as good as having an actual tail. For around $45, you can get decent generic deck with a kicktail. www.funboxdist.com.

I’ve already ordered Globe’s Maiden: http://billykite.be/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/GLOBE-The-Maiden-37.jpg
I like that it has those raised bits on the sides for better control. Havent seen another deck like it with a kicktail which is why I’m resorting to adding one to it
btw im in Canada. Funbox has some really nice stuff but they don’t have shipping options to canada
