Might be two things:

One, this is not entirely intentional, it is just a product of how the kayak left the mold it was formed in.

Two, A friend (whitewater'er) once told me he like his kayaks after the bottoms had been broken in with roughing on the rocks. I could not tell you why.

Thanx Dave , It is intentional ,the Dagger logo is on the bottom that is smooth , the rest looks like sand blast finish ... I'm wondering if it may be like that for some sort of a ski wax to adhear to .
