Burton Nug vs Forum Youngblood ChillyDog
 
Hi guys. I'm going to trade my first board, cause when i bought it I didn't know jack about snowboarding (it's a Burton Ross Powers 158, which is both out of my style and way too big and heavy for me), and I have the following options (only!):

Forum Youngblood Chillydog 154
Burton Nug 146

My height is 5.8 and I weight is 160lb. I'm a casual snowboarder (once of twice a year) for about 5 years. I'm looking for a fun board, pretty much all around. No halfpipes. Care to advise me in the right direction?

Thank you all! :bowdown:

Those are two totally different boards and will ride completely differently.

I personally would go for the Forum because I'm not necessarily a huge fan of Nugs, or other B boards with the same Raduction technology. I had one a few years back, and while it was a fun board that lived up to the hype, I didn't see myself utilizing it enought to justify keeping it. I would rather have a full size board because I like to leverage the board tips when I'm riding/playing around.

Thanks mate. What would you say the main differences are between those two?

Any more thoughts :) :bowdown:

Nug boards are really quiver boards. I'd get the forum.

What's a quiver board, mate? :blink:

I think you should go with the 150 nug. your 158 shouldn't be too big for you. I am taller
than you but weigh the same Andy 157 is perfect.
