I was one of the first aSurftech dealers in the country. When they cam out with the wood venneers on surfboards about 15 years ago we jumped right on em because they looked so cool. What we found out after people aatrated having problems was that there is no glass over the wood. They only aplied a hot coat of resin over the wood. The actual glass cloth is under the wood veneer. Because of problems with water getting into the wood fibres and causing further delamination and dificulty of repairs we now recomend that people buy wood just for wall display. Now Surftechs are made in Thailand by Glabal industries. Most of the wood SUP'S on the market are not made by Surftech but are made in China by a handfull of companies without the experience of Surftech so you will be hearing more and more about problems with wood. It does look great however.
