I’m sure there’s more ways to describe the various shapes that are between 6-9’ aka mid lengths.
I think a fun board describes a square tail round nose very rockered boring shape.
Not mine but would be if I was out there. Have a few vpins already and would still buy more of them. Real good in surf with some push.

I hear Costco has a really sweet 8'0"... Think it's called a wave stomp, or wave stoke, or something like that.
Just go to Costco, you'l see'm.
Haha! It's a Wavestrum, I think...
I would agree with this. I've said this many times in the past, but I've got a 7'4" and 8'4" v.Bowls. I consider both midlengths. The long one behaves like a lively longboard -- in the positive category: trimming, cross-steppable, ability to pick up tiny waves (but not quite as well as a proper longboard). In the maybe-negative category, having to contend with additional length and flatter rocker on steeper drops, feeling generally wider/bulkier. Neither of which are that big of a deal, especially when compared to a true longboard. The short one feels more "midlengthy". The above positives don't really apply, but the tradeoff is more confidence on steeper drops, getting into waves earlier than a shortboard without the bulk of a longboard, playful turns with good drive and flow. 7'4"-7'6" is a nice midlength range for me, but your ideal range may vary.
Feels to me like other individual shape attributes can trump or equal length in terms of how a board rides. Too many variables in design to pick a catch-all phrase to describe any given board. Case in point: my buddy Matt's Liddle that isn't really that hully, was forgiving and easy to surf, wasn't bladed out, etc. Still a hull by shaper name?
But for the purposes of getting the conversation started, "mid-length" works ok.
Edit: sorry for the syntax detour. Get a Vaquero.
Yea I was just trying to stress that i want something pretty versatile, maybe move that to knee high.
