Actually, that's google's "best guess", but it's right most of the time

Those boards float and are hard to submerge so I doubt it (I had one, but only used it at the beach)

The thing is that there seems to be a drop at the end, and who know what's at the bottom.

From looking at the GIF frame-by-frame, it appears that the guy on the red board is attempting to brake which was why he is covered by white water. The guy on the blue board hadn't started anything similar except perhaps for dragging his feet.

There does appear to be a deeper section for that channel just before that drop-off, though it is impossible to tell how much deeper. The guy on the red board hadn't reached this part by the time the GIF ends.

Not anymore; since 1959, they just use a set conversion value from metric.

Metric, incidentally, has had it's base units recalibrated too. Used to be some rods and weights, now they're based on other things which (we think) don't change as easily.

If they want to get all pedantic, maybe they shouldn't be using a depreciated metric measure to make their point.

We could do the same to the bar, though. Especially since 1 bar is not actually the same as 1 atm, which is not the same as 1 at. 1 bar = 100 kPa. We could talk about 2 bar being exceeding atmospheric pressure by a multiple of the weight of a lump of platinum-iridium in a French basement spread of the square area of 1/10,000,000 the distance from the equator to the north pole at a reference sea level.

Systems of measurement are fundamentally arbitrary and chosen based on intended application. There's no universally appropriate totally logical system.

Though the decimal system used by metric certainly is better than the English system.

Nobody gets this. That's why the metric system died in the US. Too much emphasis was put on conversion, nobody thought to say, "The names and numbers don't really matter, as long as everybody's doing it the same."
