It seems like the main difference in the newer boards was that the backs of the boards come to a point when you are looking at it from above (see RRD, North, Aguera, Mikes Lab...). I had heard this was to stop the nose of the board from bouncing up and down when you are going downwind.
The pictures you show of the NJS CF6 have the back of the board like most of last years boards, where the transom is straight. Do you notice any difference in ride quality downwind compared to other boards?
I think the curved back also helps with gybing and tacking. Makes the board carve better.
