Lighter is better for almost everything (as you said, mainly acceleration/deceleration/turning), but in my limited experience lighter boards bounce more in chop (all other things being equal).
the RRD when i first got it actually was 5.4kg so not much more than the Temavento, and i had the same feeling in chop then.
james wrote:what i was saying is that the different construction makes the board feel different on the water, there was a 400g difference in weight and yet you could feel the two boards behave differently. is that clearer?
