The length really doesn't make as much difference as you think. It's more width, outline and stifness. Remember nearly all the Shinn boards share that same magic rocker line, so they do feel similar, just tuned around outline and stiffness. Length is there to accommodate stance, but outside that, a longer board adds drag as much as it adds size. So the width/outline and stiffness make more of a contribution than the length which everyone seems to measure by.Oldnbroken wrote:Been wondering if the Dundee 132X42 was any better at planing with moderate power than my Monk 132X41, which could be better in the lulls.
When I've got lots of power, it is sublime.
Kinda wish they had designed the Dundee 132X42 as a 135X42 or 136X42.
but to answer more specifically - yes, better planing and better upwind. It will also feel a lot more alive under medium power, more feedback, more feel...Oldnbroken wrote:Been wondering if the Dundee 132X42 was any better at planing with moderate power than my Monk 132X41, which could be better in the lulls.

good job!Oldnbroken wrote: Boards got short 4-5 years (forget exactly) after the pickle fork days were done.
But yeah, for a while things got short with the 119 CM Protoy types
