Has anyone seen or ridden a No Brand Mini Nugget board? I was cruising around yesterday looking at boards for some inspiration and saw it at the Surftech dealer. I would rent it for a day to give it a try, but they don't rent out that model, and they want $900 for it, so that's out of the question. Wondering what others think about it.
I like the way it has pinched rails all the way through, and very low rocker. I also like that it isn't a hull but a short version of an older style longboard. I was thinking about this kind of design, but so far this is the first one I've seen that wasn't a long board. I'm thinking about making something similar between 6'5" and 7'.
My brother has a 10' longboard with similar rails and it really works great. I'd like to incorporate a triplane bottom or just have a edges rolled up to pinched rails on my next medium sized board. I really like the super low nose rocker and slightly more curve and rocker in the last third of the board. It's like a backwards rocker and I'm finding this to be the best paddling and turning combination.
