Lookin for a review/guidance on the dwart. I keep hearing 3-6" smaller than your normal board, why? I need a solid board for long island mush
Many people find that once they get used to a certain volume for their boards, they like to keep it relatively consistent or slightly more volume for small wave board. If your good wave shortboard is 6'0" x 18 7/8" then a dwart that is 5'8" x 20 1/4" (just guessing) would maintain a similar-slightly increased volume. If you got the 6'0" x 21" dwart, the increase in volume would be pretty corky feeling.
In my experience, extra width provides a whole lot more benefit than extra length inmushy waves, and extra board length can actually make really frustating turns in slow waves.
