Don't mind your Nugget Volume board.
Bigger riders or light wind days.
Noticed only front inserts.

twinnie cool crafting but not my jamLove the look of the 5'3 for light wind strapless - finish looks schmicko. Did you think about a version with even less literage in it given the outline and planning hull? Or maybe in at 20.5-21 wide?

I had a standard pu groms groveller that was similar outline (but everything pulled in, round tail and none of your funkiness on bottom) years ago and it was FUN in slop

Same for me I like my Normal Wave A shape thruster with smaller tail area Re Pugg design made for 100 kg + riders or light wind Less volume can not beat my Shredder model with 3 different sizes 5' / 5'2" /5'3" planning hull / cut off nose

Been having fun Testing PUGG It's way to much volume for me at 30 lts But still fun and turns great for such a big tail area Good In the chop with deep channels/planning hull Hopefully soon can try in waves Also keen to get 100 k rider on it to Test

Where the hell are you testing this? Certainly can't be Victoria, you guys aren't in spring suit weather yet. I can't wait for warmer water.

Probably a few riders out there looking for a Nugget replacement. Mine is a couple of years old now and starting to get a bit soft in the deck from having 100kg bounce around on it. Be interesting to see someone compare it, because it looks like a weapon.

Looking forward for 100 kg Nugget rider to test it Nugget rider who has asked me to come up with design Which has been based on Nugget Volume and size but with Smook Shredder concept which is proven design
