I've been riding more crud lately and I feel very unstable at times going fast on my medium stiff boards (TRS, Rossi Angus and Templar).

I generally prefer shorter boards and I was wondering if getting longer medium stiff board will be better or same length stiffer board will be better for these conditions at higher speed.
