Cheers for the link JL, crazy ideas - aluminiumised cloth?
Looks pretty cool but dunno if it has any other benefits? I'd guess it'd be quite a good board in warmer climates as it'd reflect a lot of heat (like the metalic board bags)
Carbon/Kevlar are pretty old designs these days, seems like the research and technology is too expensive for it to be cost effective though! Tufflites/S-cores are the way forward in that field.
Ive heard good things about the FBF and I'd imagine if you predominately ride a longboard that would be the best option - speak to Chops!
