  for me
  Posted by: radiomix on Oct-08-12 1:43 PM (EST)

Choppy water is the reason for shortening the wing, and really the only reason being it keeps me from dunking my hand. If the rise and fall of the boat us unpredictable I tend to miss the plant and dunk my hands.

But also, in my mind a slightly longer paddle feels like it is generating more leverage and speed. So on long flat paddles I justify a longer paddle by relaxing a bit and shorten up my reach.
