I find one inch makes a lot of difference. Mine's a 43 Cassette and I really felt the difference when I tried my friends 4-trac (42").
Theoretically, the bigger boards are easier for w2w.
Try to see according to your weight/size I guess.

Don't buy LF buy Cassette and support rider owned companies.I think you know how to use the internet there's plenty of great deals out there that'll ship to Can.Buying from shops here is a major burn anyways.

On buywake you can get a concave Horrell or Kovacich for USD 180. That's less than CAD 240. Plus, they offer you the ground shipping.
Oh, and the Kampus Swing is on sale for only USD 120...

yeah i ride a lot wake to wake and i ride the tech 42, i think the tech 42 is perfect because the directional board helps you get more pop and at 42 inches it is pefect size i'm 5'11" and 145 pounds, i tried the 43 and i hated it the 41 is a good size though too

I have the Casette 40 and 41 inch sk8s. I like the 41 alot better. I'm like 125 lbs, and the 40 inch w2w is alot harder then the 41. I would suggest the if you are doin w2w.

The effort people are putting in to convince this kid to buy something worthwhile and just worth supporting, rather than buying some lame ripoff that is easy to get (and is "cool"), is commendable. But he doesn't get it and probably doesn't care.

Do you understand now?
