There are different foams than PU and EPS, and also qualities. F-one Magnet is a good example of a factory board designed this way, however, its forte is in strapless freestyle and for pure wave riding there are better shaped boards. I ride customs.

OMG, you are arrogant and a troll. You are basically calling out everbody in the kitesurf industry designing kite surfboards as not knowing what they are doing. Lets see a few pictures of this holy grail board you speak of so self righteously.
So, here we go, what did I tell you? And me being troll, yeah...

Just look at the Northkites new proto boards Camille Delannoy is riding at competitions, and it's for 100% waves:

The look almost skim boards. Are they Eps construction? If so if so i wonder how many layers they use top and bottom ( and mm of layers)
Also they look like disposable boards ( not long lasting boards)

Well, I don't know their construction, but I have been riding similar boards for three years now, the current one two years with heavy landings, no cracks whatsoever.
