could mean many things depending on who says it; venturi effect is a hydrodynamic effect that applies more to flow in a pipe than under a board, basically it means to put a given amount of water through a funnel, the flow velocity at the narrow tip end > flow velocity at the wide mouth end. Usually applied to boards, people mean the board has a concave or channels that approximate this effect, but concaves and channels don't really work that way, they work because of other effects.....

composite means made of more than one material, the opposite meaning of monolithic. Yes, Divinycell is commonly used as a core in composite boards.

only if they are shallow, not deep. Shallow = only scratching resin hot coat or varnish/paint. Deep = through outer coating into glass layers. Also, if it has a snowboard type plastic sheet bottom, no, surfboard polishing probably won't fix that.

from a guy that has one. most people make their own, according to the design of the board they are going to build!

Not sure what you mean, "matte" is a word in english to describe a finish that is not shiny (same meaning as a "Flat" finish, opposite of "gloss").
