My first board back in the day was a styrofoam core Morrow that I snapped in half my 3rd day out on the mountainl... Palmer still does make that Honey Comb core board. Alternative core materials were big in the late 90's and early 00's when everyone was all about carbon fiber and "techy" materials but really they mostly produced stiff, dead feeling snowboards. Wood is the core of choice because of the diversity of types of wood available and it's different properties to design a core that fits what type of riding you want to do.
