When the Burton Nug Snowboard hit the scene, we weren't sure what to make of the tiny board that claimed it could shred the entire mountain. However, with a few seasons under its belt, the Nug has proven that you can still rip it on a board that's 8-10cm smaller than you would normally ride. It's stiffer than you'd guess, which gives it plenty of high-speed stability, while the rockered profile and spoon-shaped nose and tail keep it fun and buttery. If you need a fresh perspective on the mountain, the Nug will open your mind.
The Nug's twin shape means it rides switch exactly like it does regular. It has a rockered profile, which keeps it loose and fun, without sacrificing float or stability. You'll notice the tight sidecut, which will have you riding lines in the trees that your buddies on old school board shapes can only dream of. Side Effects give you the absolute maximum effective edge, which is key for maintaining edge hold on a smaller board. And it gets even better with Frostbite edges, which bump out under the binding for tenacious grip on ice and hardpack.
The lightweight Super Fly core is profiled for a controlled flex, even in choppy snow. Squeezebox takes this concept a step further, thinning the core under the bindings for an even flex along the entire length of the board. That gets a boost from The Channel mounting system, which works in conjunction with EST bindings to give you unrestricted flex and incomparable board feel. Pro Tip keeps the Nug spinning fast, and Infinite Ride ensures that it feels broken-in right out of the box, and stays that way. Plus, it has a pine-scented scratch-and-sniff topsheet, so you get all the tech you need, plus a little more.
The Burton Nug snowboard is all fun and nothing else. Built for all-mountain riding but sized shorter than your usual snowboard, the Nug is ready to conquer the entire mountain.

I was skeptical because I have owned and ridden other burtons and have not liked them much at all. This board handles totally different. It is light and maneuverable which i like. Great for playing around and spinning off everything you can find. Handles well at all speeds. Havnt tried it in pow yet but I plan on picking one up ASAP. Only down side is since there is not much of a tip and tail its hard to butter around. I butter was not smooth at all. All around fun board.
This board has only reinforced my joy from slightly small boards now all my pow boards are gonna be like this the fishcuit as well in a 148 this nug tech is awesome.
The Nug is definitely a great idea. It is fun to be able to take out a much smaller board as it gives you a whole different perspective on the mountain. Tree runs are more playful and spinning is pretty effortless. That being said, the Nug just didn't give enough back for me to really enjoy it. When you really start to push this board you don't get as much back as with the Super Hero or with the Restricted Nug (cambered version of this board). The Nug is definitely fun in pow and great for cruising (it would be a great board to add to a quiver), but if you are looking for an everyday board I would go with the Super Hero.
