Its just that everyone has their own board opinion, and some opinions are a little bias because of the board they currently ride. I am not going to lie, I do ride the B.O.B. but I have had the chance to test out both, before I got one. As for as I consider, for my first ride I really loved the B.O.B... I guess my biggest suggestion, is get in contact with Performance Ski & Surf. They have tons of employees who know their gear the best, or even email LF and discuss your riding style and they sure help suggest the right board for you... That is what I did after I tested them to.
Just adding on to what I said earlier.
