True, But I can kind of see the point here that as far as I understand it they were using the boards on the same beach as the Starboard guys. And not only that but they were doing it during the Starboard photoshoot, which seems a bit weird to me. Do you think Honda test Nissan's cars on the same test track as Nissan? Or Audi grab a drive in a Mercedes at a public event. It does seem strange that the JP guys were using a competitors board so openly in public - kinda of says to me that they are trying to beat the performance of the Starboard - if not then why were they using it?
All quite funny though and quite a cool behind the scenes look at the testing and development side of the sport
