Your spot on Dave, I tend to just use different type of ply or glue to alter the flex, rather than let the deck get to thick or heavy.

I agree i don't like thick heavy boards , but am constantly being asked to make them . i think making boards available in different flexes is the go . But getting the shops to inform customers that they have a " choice ", instead of selling whatever is in stock is the hard part !
