Boogie boarding Class Vs

Can a rapid that is supposedly CLASS V, really be a class V when commercials have large groups of tourists boogie boarding it? Seems that the rapid is over-rated. Your thoughts?

Not sure what river your talking about, but I have an old shirt from River Runners naming 5 class V rapids in Browns Canyon.

If bused river trash can board a drop; it is not class 5 at that flow.

I know a lady who has boarded the Grand Canyon, Giant Gap and other bigger water Class V(-) stuff. Those boards are pretty forgiving in the right kind of water.

They have their own rating, but I could have sworn that a couple of the rapids were class 5. The point is that big water class 5 can probably be boarded.
