For the sailor you describe the money difference is probably not worth it, the wood version will be lighter, so plane sooner. Lots of time we dont have the luxury to pick either one or the other, unless its a new 2008 board, and if you are considering a 2008 you can probably afford either. I have felt that my lightweight boards are more fragile, only to be told that the material used is stronger and light weight as well, hence the additional cost. I dont think repair would be more difficult 1 VS the other, unless its a limited production, like they made some hollow *Boards.
