Not Wiley's boards but some random stand up boog footage...imagine it's be similar on the beaters, maybe a tad easier w/ the extra length...

Oh yeah, if you're over say 190lbs don't plan on doing much stand up surfing on it unless the waves have some juice and you have your skills dialed in.

I think they're good they can take a good beating, make sure they have removable fins though and I'd suggest a tri incase you really wanna start to surf. A beater is hard to turn though

Ok. I have one (single fin Catch Surf Beater Board) and this is my review.
Responsiveness: very. I like it for skating down little waves and such. Don't use the fins. If the wave is too big to ride w/o the fins use a real board. Reason being is that the fin(s) make it stiff and slow it down more than anything. I can also do shuv it's and 360s with no fin.
Shape/use: weird subject, I know. The bottom channels help with holding power and speed, and the foam top is just SO much fun cuz it doesn't hurt if u botch a trick. Since they are small they are easy to turn, very skatey.
Ok so that's all I've got... Really a simple board, good for the really little groms. Also, I talked to Catch Surf and they are doing pro models for the whole team. They're going to have new graphics and fin boxes that hold ANY futures or fcs fins. I like the whole thing... Don't know about y'all.
