It's funny about toughness. I took my NSP 14 through a creek last week. Lots of trees to dodge and beaver dams to navigate. That guy is pretty tough, but still it got pierced. I don't know if I'm too fussy about my dings, but I'd rather not have to repair too often. I'm going to search around, but I can get one of those Bics new for $350, which is heard to beat.

FRP, when I can afford an inflatable, I will get one!

I have a 10'6" ace-tec, and it is damn heavy. I can imagine the tough-tec is even heavier.

Yeah, Iím prepared for that. This board is going to beaten up, so the weight is kind of secondary. Iím also interested in putting a board like this through itís paces. I think of it as taking a VW Beetle cross country or something.

On my break, there is a guy that has had his ToughTec for 5 years. He catches almost every wave that comes by him and has a great time. The thing is all dented to hell, but it keeps catching waves.
