cores: foam vs wood?

Haven''t they come up with anything beyond the foam and the balsa ?

I would think a moderately tight "closed cell" honeycomb pattern would be the most structually stiff with a combination lightness. I would think its less likely to absorb or wick any water that might ingress if the hull is breached
