Yes, I believe the CHB is more of a beginner board than the 11up. I looked at both at the local shop and bought the 11up because it has a little more stiffness and has a faster/better base. The guy at the shop said the CHB is a littel "noodley" but still a solid board.
I don't think you can go wrong with either. I do remember reading in a few places...possibly this forum that some people complained about the Decades ability to hold an edge. I have no idea why that would be, but just remember reading it.
