Default Corrugated pipe difficulty?

Just wondering how corrugated pipe differs from a normal pipe? I've always been afraid to hit them because I feel like a boardslide on one of them is just asking to catch an edge. I see myself getting off-balanced and dipping an edge into one of the sections and just doing all sorts of damage to my edges. Also wondering what the appeal of them is.. i guess just a quick pros/cons of hitting them in general =)

It's a grooved surface. It's a little more difficult to slide. You can break your board on anything.

I was 50/50 one and caught an edge and slammed hard and ate the shit out of my face on the fall. Happened super fast. I"m still VERY gun shy on these.
Did I mention I was still gun shy on these
