Burton Nug 150

175lbs 6'0"
(+18, -15), 24.5", size 12 US

Note: I am personally biased in favor of regular camber profiles. The Nug has Burton's (flying?) V rocker shape

I rode this thing over two days and pretty much in all the different conditions. Early in the morning the slopes would be icy and hard, with overcast skies, and gradually during the day the clouds would clear, the sun coming out and warming up the snow until it turned into spring slush late in the afternoon. I rode it off-piste in anything between 12-24 inches of two-day old snow and I also took it into the park on kickers and jibs.

This thing is the most fun resort board ever. It has great maneouverability, holds a decent edge so can do a bit of carving, poppy, stable, buttery, great for jibbing and all in all really fun! I bought one two days after returning it to the test center (it took me that long to find one here in Europe) and I will be consigning the rest of my boards to the basement for the rest of the season.

The down sides: I know Dave Downing and various other industry people have talked about killing it in powder on this thing but I found it just a little bit sketchy in deep snow. I wouldn't want to take it far beyond the grounds - there's easily better boards for that.

The biggest kicker I hit with this thing is about 35 feet and I was only doing straight airs on that - it didn't feel very stable on it so I would say not great for medium and bigger size jumps.

This board looks awesome. I am looking into getting it. I am mild. I dont do huge jumps yet and i dont bomb huge steeps that hard so this might be perfect for me. The only problems seem to be with people that are really skilled and looking at it for specific things like doing huge jumps. Being in deep pow or bombing steep icy hills which i wont be seeing much of. Sry that this is a little late of a post but did u end up buying this board? If so hows it holding up? Im also about the same size as u so it would be nice to get some feedback. Thanx

i bought it and it was fun for a while. but, as you said above, i'm one of the people looking for a board to perform at the higher end - bigger jumps, deep powder, backcountry, etc. - so this board did not end up being my main deck. i think it is a decent deck if you plan on doing 7-21 days of riding per season.

i've got an unused model from 2010/2011 season in 150cm with Malavita bindings - at a good discount. PM me if you're inerested.
