Default GNU Park Pickle 2012 OR Burton NUG 2012

Hey guys,

Another question.

Looking at both these boards! What one would be the go?

Considering the NUG won the 2012 Best board, im thinking about heading that way.

Im in Australia so the Pickle is $500 and the Burton $350 - so anywhere i can save money is good.

I havent ridden either so any help would be great!

I haven't ridden the Nug but im sure it's a good quality board being from Burton.

If you're worried about money then save yourself the 150$ and go with it.

It is kinda weirdly small though...

Nug. Other than powder and the mind trip of riding that small of a board, it's actually solid. Oh and powder is just me apparently, I just can't believe that short of a tail is going to steer comfortably.

Remember, size down.

Burton nug is the way to go. I ride a 142 burton me nug and I love it, it's super flexible and soft but handles great outside of the park.
