This makes it easier to see the water surface. If there are few ripples on the surface then what you see from the board is the bottom of the pool rather than the water surface. This makes it harder to judge where you are in relation to the water. It also breaks the surface tension of the water down somewhat, which means it is less of a shock hitting the water. This isn't as important as being able to see the surface easily though.
