Those conditions are the result of suction, a very specific condition that would actually cause this. You know what works better at breaking this suction? Base structure. A nice base grind pattern or even better a structurn pattern prevents this from happening. In the other 99% of conditions other aspects of the board make more of a difference. I'm going to finish by leaving a link to a previous thread with quite a few well respected members posting their opinions, as well as actual science
