Surprising Benefits of the Tail Devil: Adding Fun and Motivation

Don’t be fooled by its gimmicky appearance – I was skeptical myself at first. But after trying it out, I have to admit that the Tail Devil was a blast to use and added a ton of fun to our skate school setups. Plus, we found that it sparked our students’ interest, motivating them to put down their devices and engage in the healthy physical activity of skateboarding. Many students even began to push their limits and improve their skills as a result.

Encouraging Skateboarding Skills and Creativity

Our experience with the Tail Devil includes adding it to some of our school boards and watching the kids get hyped to give it a try. It provided extra encouragement and motivation for those who hadn’t previously learned how to manual or drag their tail while riding. With the Tail Devil attached, they were more keen to give it a go and also try it going faster. Weeks later, we still had kids specifically requesting the boards with Tail Devils. Our coaches were also pretty keen on them and they all had several goes.

One of our students was so keen on the Tail Devil that he ended up getting two – one for each end of his board 😂 They are actually designed for use on a tail, but there are photos of experienced riders placing them on different areas of their boards on the Tail Devil’s Instagram page.
