Is this due to dull planer blades? I’ve tried sending it thru in both directions. Can’t seem to plane it away

Looks like snipe? If you run three pieces butted in a row through your planer the middle piece should be fine. The first and third usually will have this on one end. You can also build a sled to help with shorter pieces. If it is snipe try googling it.

It’s happening all along the board, not just on the ends. I can get most of it out by starting with 40 grit sandpaper...

I have a typical problem with my DeWalt 13 & 1/2" planer. After research I learned it is the drive is skipping. I can get replacement bushings. Gonna give that a try

Try spritzing the wood with water sometimes on highly figured wood I used to get tear out (I switched to a helical head since then) but that would be the quick fix.
