Travelling with plane could definitely be an issue, if you do it very often, or live very far from the sea, no doubt.
As otherwise it is easy to have in a surf board bag, where you are allowed 2 to 3 meter boards either for free, or low cost at least.
They are very friendly against us surfers, nice
We are so lucky here in Denmark, that we got the longest shoreline in the world, compared to our size, and also closed fjords and other "inland" areas with flat water - got big atlantic swell coastlines, as well as safe protected coastlines on the other sides, sometimes as bays with totally flat water and clean wind, and can ride in all places, in fact only a few hours drive even to the farthest spot, and usually in all wind directions we have between a few minuttes to max 45 minutes if living in the center of Denmark, in fact no matter where you live, we got water all around us - meaning we dont have to travel, so mostly it is with surfboards we go in the winther, to get rid of darkness and winter depression ha haa.
We are spoiled, I know
So travelling "inland" is not an issue when so short to good water everywhere, and only rarely overseas, mostly racers for competitions, but they have 110-115 masts and longer boards anyways so just use the std "surf" luggage.
Could explain why none of us here seek shorter boards for THIS purpose at least
For me it is not psychological avoiding super short boards, but extremely practical and physical.
Just like lebast says, with a quite wide stance, if you have to stand on the nose of the board, no problem mentally, but you need a board that is flat with no nose-scoop for a balanced stance, and its angle will have to be so when touching down or starting, the nose will often catch to a crash
If you got straps and jumps, yes you can learn to ride without a nose, but you will have it a lot easier with a scoop nose just in front of the foot - almost same goes for waves and whitewater, it is a "saver" and everything gets easier, only gain with this.
I am not as good a rider as many of you it seems, so that could be the reason - but when I only see downsides for boards close to or shorter than 100 cm, and loads of gain for just a tad longer (not big, but having a tad of sccop in front of your foot), I choose this mostly.
Supershort boards on occasion in the summer for the fun of doing it, but t.ex never in the cold winther as only downsides with these IMO, so 110-120 the best small size for me.
