Somehow the term "StrucTurn" didn't magically come to me as I searched "dimpled bases."

You just can't control yourself, can you Phenom?

Nope, it's the same. Wax, scrape, brush, buff. No difference whatsoever.

Drake does this among the other brands mentioned.

Am I the only one that sees this as being detrimental to a board's speed?

Golf balls have dimples to be more AERODYNAMIC. The dimples create swirling pockets of air that decrease ind resistance. How would this help somehting that rides on a mostly solid surface?
