There are pros and cons to a full wrap v. tucked, but at the end of the day a full wrap provides minimally more protection so get the board you want. Remember a full edge wrap does not protect your topsheet from dipshits in line.
Pretty much all of that. And remember that the Mervin boards (like many others) have plastic noses and tails, i.e., no core that could delam in the tips.
