    I have a two piece beyond it suites the wide tail. Dekine have a three piece tail pad that you could split across the tail.
    Stick it into google images you get some great Ideas there. There is also a company who make tail pads for wider tails one guy on the forum posted a link somewhere.

          I use Dakine where I can - good quality adhesive 3M. There are a heap of good quality tail pads out there, that all use 3M adhesive; Creatures, Gorilla, O&E, CI, OAM.

          I'm not that sure about the practice of spreading the pad out wide, I don't think it does anything really. I rarely move my rear foot from side to side much at all and if I do it is usually an indication the fins aren't doing their job and I'm trying to put weight on the rail to get more hold.

                It looks better though :P
                I also feel like a pad stuck in the middle of a wider tail looks a bit lost compared to a spread one. I guess it depends on the size of your feet too.

                  I liked this CI pad that S.L. uses on his 5'6. They come in various colors.

                        Im loving the new O & E pads. You buy the 3 pieces seperately so you can mix and match some crazy colours. Plus if it starts coming off somewhere you only have to replace 1/3 of it.Attachment
