That's closer to the true =)

You will get a lot of fun, if you freinds doesn't ride fast. Be ready to fall all the time for 2-3 days.
I think it doesn't matter if it got a wood core or not. You won't feel the difference.

Cons of this setup(IMO):
1. Boots. Modern boots offer more comfort, and that's the main thing. You contact the board with your feet. Also this may not give enought hold.
2. Binders. All the same. All about hold and response.
3. Board edges. They must be sharp enough, eve for the newbie.
4. Board response. Hard to explain, but modern board are more predictable.
