Default SUP: Clydesdale, Technora vs Wood?

SUP is calling out to me.

212#, exercise paddling, low-wind cruising, a little low-wind surf sailing, a little SUP surfing..

Just blew $300 on a paddle.

Tried a few boards at the local dealer: 10 x 34, 12'6" x 30, 12' x 32".

10 x 34 felt the most lively, but I'm told it doesn't have the glide of the 12 x 32.

12 x 32 felt better to me than the 12'6" x 30, so that's probably the one.

But now I'm down to construction.

A big part of that 10 x 34's liveliness seemed tb it's extreme light weight (Technora).

OTOH, browsing the lit, I'm not seeing Technora and universal joint receptacle on the same pages.

Is there something about Technora that rules out use with a sail?

If not, can anybody ballpark the price/weight diff between Technora and wood for a 12 x 32?
