Check what the construction details of the wood boards in this link: http://www.star-board.com/2010/produ...technology.php
"Developed by Jean Louis Colmas in 1984, Wood Technology became Starboard's trademark construction since 1995. Starboard's production Wood boards then set the lead in lightweight sandwich technology, weighing in at a kilo under the competition, yet with higher impact resistance.
A sheet of 0.6 mm Australian pine wood forms the full outer shell of the board. Wood's unique properties are its natural rigidity, superior resistance to compression and higher energy absorption compared to carbon. It is the construction with the highest dynamic shape stability.
•Highest dynamic shape stability
•Quad, Kode, Flare, Futura, iSonic
•Heavy Duty DUR-X Wood construction on the Quads, the Kode 80 and smaller."
