Haven't riden any of there surf boards but their SUP and Windsurfing boards are great. Naish has been around the windsurfing comunity for a long time and are inovators there. I would also be surprised if REAL would promote a product that wasn't good quality and performed as well. They have been around a while too and have become a major player.
Harold Iggy has been shaping forever but some of the Naish boards on that website look sketchy to me.
9 foot longboard set up as FCS tri fin:
Heres how they describe a poly board with wood veneer deck.
"The name says it all…Classic Wood. These boards can double duty as surfboards in the Summer and beautiful wall hangers in the Winter. Three-tone wood veneer. The first three we sold were going straight to the mantle, but don’t underestimate the ride".

I took advantage of Real's "Quiver Builder" promotion, and ended up with a Rusty T2 tuf lite , leash, and tail pad for $315 brand new. Check it out, although theres not as much of a selection as there was a few months ago.
Basically , you have to buy three boards at $300 a piece.
