Board dependent to a point

I was at an amateur SUP race last weekend where the top finishers did a 5-mile course in under an hour, including waves, wind, and buoy turns. Many had 14' boards, and some had 12'6" boards, all race-style or BOP ("Battle of the Paddle") style boards. All the "surfboard" style SUPs lagged way behind.
