2nd board help NUG, HARVEST, or ROOT

This will be my no new snow board. I'm not quit ready to start split boarding when there's no fresh snow, so I want a fun playful board to carve up groomers and pop off anything I can find. would also like it to be very stable at high speeds, and fun in the park. I like the idea of riding a smaller board than my arbor element and one that's has more flex and is better suited for the park.... Thank you for reading another fucking new board thread.

Never ridden the Root or Harvest but impression of My Nug are below:


Forget about stable at high speeds. But the Nug is rad for everything else you want to do. So fun to throw around. Don't count it out for light to moderate pow days either. It performs suprisingly well in pow, up to a point.

My one word of caution is, do not bomb down faces (esp with bumps) like you would on your normal deck. With the full center reverse and reduced length you just dont get area or edge to lock in. Wrecked myself a few times doing this.

I use the Nug when I'm burned out, hungover, injured or need to ride with my wife. Just dial it back two gears and enjoy doinkin around, park laps etc.
