I agree the 133 is no fun if you are not planning.......you have to watch the nose to ensure it does not pearl and it has little directional stability...BUT...I have rarely found myself in that position because it glides through lulls so well provided your technique is good. I found that because the board is so wide it is easy to think you are sailing the board flat (rail to rail) when in fact you are sinking the windward rail, especially in a deep lull. Pointing with your toes and physically lifting the windward rail keeps the board planning at incredibly low speeds. I have changed the 133 for a 127 but not had a chance to sail it yet..it is a little longer than the 133 so I am hoping that improves the balance of the board nose to tail.
