His description of how they worked were something like, riding a magic carpet on a layer of ball bearings. What I think he was getting at was that they created a lot of planing lift, and that slippery less wetted area feel. Like belly channels, or dare I say it dimples.
I was shaping lots of belly channels at the time, and was keen to shape a board, and get him to whack a set in it for me. But we never got around to it, and I regret it now.
