there are definitely pros and cons to tuflite boards. They look great and are ultra light (too light, imo)...but they don't hold wax worth a damn and are extremely stiff to the point where turns have to be forced. I also found them slow...but I'm a speed freak. The stiffness may not matter on the size board you're considering, but problem then becomes the hardness of tuflite glass...if a TL board that size hits you in the head, you're probably going to need stitches.
