Shorter blade, I've never used them so have no first hand info. Bodyboarders often kneel or stand hence the shorter blade. I only know one bodyboarder that uses UDT, but he is a drive to the pocket stay prone guy. Only one session on the new UDT, jury still out. Takes a longer/slower kick, the flutter (and acceleration) that I normally use with Ducks won't happen, at least with my legs, as the larger blades equal a big difference in water resistance/movement. I know a lot of body surfers and mat riders that love their UDTs. I also know a lot of body surfers that use much small fins like DaFin because they have less resistance and faster acceleration.
