    I do agree that it seems like stupid concept. These types of board were originally designed as blackball beater boards to get around length requirements in CA so you could surf all day. In most places we surf you still couldn't take that out at a non-surf beach in the summer so why waste your money?

    As far as riding shorepound? Why? Just find a spot that isn't breaking right on the sand and and ride a standard board.
