Burton Nug??

Anybody seen these yet?? I am pretty intrigued about these. Here is what little I could find out about it...

This board is next years Burton release, it has not been released yet, and is not available for sale anywhere else. It is 142cm, however, this new type of board is supposed to be rode about 10cm shorter than your usual snowboard. It is built to be good on the trails, but great in the park, because of its shorter template it enables you to huck more spins with more ease.

WWW has both camber and rocker options and it's meant to be ridden 5 or 8cm's shorter I don't care. All that means is they pushed the contact points out further and blunted the tips. It's nothing revolutionary, hell look at Mervin and their claims about the Banana.
