I reckon that the only way this type of seat might work is to have it high so that you're almost standing and riding it jockey style with a low slung kidney back support.
I agree looking at it on a "common sense" basis the direction of movement looks uncomfortable ... was just saying what I had seen in the mag.
Particularly when stuffing into a wave and suddenly decelerating / being thrown forwards, the last thing you need would seem to be the seat tipping forwards and a big shove in the middle of your back to push you forwards but I suppose it depends how much movement there is in the seat - if the deceleration means you naturally move forwards anyway (so you are not touching the backrest) maybe it works even though it seems like it shouldn't? I have no idea how much range of movement there is in the seat?
However my main concern is being a fat ^%&()d the seat would probably come out of the deck if I landed on it with a few G behind me
