Default Dimpled bases (like a golf ball)?

Does anyone know if any manufacturer has experimented with making a snowboard (or ski) with a dimpled base similar to the design golf balls use to improve flow through media (in this case, snow)? Adding some texture to the base while waxing helps break surface tension on wet snow, so it seems as if it would be the same principle. Discuss.
