Well after reading about and watching a few of their video's. I decided to pick up a kit from home depot (doesn't hurt they had it right by the front door).
The product has a kind of rough feel and not what I expected it to look or feel like.
It is extremely spooky how much it really is just like the demo video's.

I tested it out on our beater boat board(LF custom).
Normally we ride about 11mph with full ballast and with that board you can do decent but not like our others. After the coating I had to speed up to 12 to keep from hitting the boat.
After the coating the board was much faster and seemed to be able to recover from pearling easier than normal. It made it release off the top of the wake easier. It did seem to make it feel looser.

We did have an issue with the coating peeling off by the end of the day but we did not wait the full 12 hours before we used it. It kind of reminds me of plasti-dip on how it peels off. Rubbery and smooth peel off.
I sprayed it throughout the morning with one base coat and three top coats.
Then let it sit about 2-3hours before it hit the water. Also the test board isn't the best surface and I could have done some mild roughing of the surface to prep it.
Either way for $20 it made for a great experiment and would recomend it for others to play around with.
