I hate it until I love it. It happens every time I use it. It's that kind of surface for me.
But I have a definite love-hate relationship with this surface. My usual technique with pastels just doesn't work well on it. The boards are very different. They are thin like paper but rigid like a board. They are flexible but can snap if bent too far. They have a resin thermoplast coating and are acid free, won't yellow or buckle when wet. They can be used on both sides. The Multimedia Artboard doesn't have any grit but the Pastel Artist panels do have a sanded side for pastels. You can use both for pastels and I sometimes add my own layer of pumice mix for grit.
