Incorrect, angle of the box is also important. Chubanga v3 needs a different angle as all other brands (they made a mistake in the rushed registration process). Be sure to have a board with the correct mast to rocker angle for your intended foil as that is something you can't adjust easily. Most foils you can shim/trim to adjust the front foot pressure, no rail needed here if you are somewhat close to the intended footstrap position.

Seen too many broken fone boards. So unless they changed construction or they are exceptionally cheap you should look somewhere else. If you see a pro on it, give it a second look. Most of the time it's a custom board with the same color scheme.
Got a grudge against F-One ? I have rarely seen a broken race foilboard of any brand ... Can you speculate where "so many of them" are breaking?
Having met and talked to a few foil pro riders, a great part of their job is R&D for the brands that sponsor them, so riding boards made by "competitors " is nonsense. Anyhow, I can assure you that Bainbridge and Gomez (F-One), both top 10 riders, use off-the-shelf boards developed ... by them.
Connor rides Blue Fox boards and this is what Benoit was riding in Palma, don't know the brand but it's not the stock fone race board for sure:
