The smaller end of your board is the tail, the larger being the nose. The nose is also referred to as the "catch" because it is meant to catch your foot during an ollie, so the nose is larger to better catch your foot. The tail is smaller and slightly closer to the ground for faster response and better pop. Anybody who uses the larger end of their skateboard as the tail is actually making it harder on themselves.

What Is the Nose Of a SkateBoard?

The nose of the skateboard is always a bit longer than the tail and has a bit more concave. Always. Nobody knows why they are that way or if there is even a reason for it it has just always been like that. Although Jereme Rogers released a pro model with Plan B recently that has "switch concave". This means that both the nose and tail are exactly symmetrical.

What happens when your skateboard cracks where the trucks are?

Depends on how severe the crack is. Typically, you can still ride it, especially if the crack is running vertically (nose to tail or vice versa) rather than horizontally (toe to heel). If the crack is a little bigger, just try to be careful not to jump any stairs or land too hard on your board...unless you want it to crack all the way.
