Tail design is one of the key components of a surfboard shape. This video shows the CFD simulations performed during the development of the Carlos and Toro models to analyze the differences in the wake flow generated by the squash (Toro) and round (Carlos) tails. While water shears off at higher speed from the Toro, the Carlos leaves a smaller wake partly compensating for the slower speed of the water flow coming out the tail and giving similar drag to the two boards. This also shows the importance of considering not just a single component of the design but also the interaction between them to find the best balance and the best performance for each board
