Actually if you watch the video posted by PCP immediately above your post, you'll see exactly why cat boats are used in surf.

..but that doesn't mean they are the best platform by any means. I am honestly not at all sure what is, but then I don't claim to be an expert on the subject either.

A bad day on a boat beats a good day in the office
