I have the opportunity to buy a Cabrinha Skillet 5'6", either the 2011 wood deck version or the 2012 cork deck version for the same price. I suspect the wood deck may be more durable, though the straps, pads and fins seem better on the cork deck model.
Does anyone have any experience with either boards?
Without question the 2012 is better than the 2011.
The 2011 was a bit too stiff and was a tad bit heavier.
The 2012 has a really great feel to it and the .5lb difference is noticeable to me.
HAVE FUN WITH IT!
