Irregularity causes vortexes like a swimsuit with sharkskin. Vortexes causes less friction than smooth surfaces. Smooth surfaces cause a vacuum and this is the friction in the water. But irregularity doesn't mean that every irregularity is good. What is smooth? What looks like smooth can look very rough under a microscope.
