Looks are a matter of personal taste, and in many but not all respects so is performance.
Have you seen the thruster in question being ridden, or are you merely assuming?
I have seen many videos of your board in action, and it always looks like crap. I know that any RC, Allison, or Island Inspired EC long board looks way better in the water. From that, I can make an honest assumption that RID's board will probably outperform your board in stability and maneuverability.
