The Nugget is the kind of board that can help you have maximum fun in light winds and small surf. As the guys at North say, the Nugget is all about having fun and maximizing your time and stoke in the water. And they are right.

This board rips small waves and can get you riding when other wait for the wind to pick up. It is not the usual type of surf kiteboard. The wider and rounded shape makes it very lively and controllable. The very low rocker, combined with a special bottom shape, provides a smooth and fast glide and improves upwind performance in light breezes and small surf.

The wide and rounded tail also makes the board snappy and lively and allows you to carve tight turns with ease. Although the Nugget looks kinda fat, short and compact, it has an awesome potential. It allows you to ride strapped or strapless and perform stunning tricks with ease. If you want to express your talent in light winds and small waves, this is the perfect board for you. The quad fin configuration makes it loose and snappy and assures a solid drive.

North has crafted the Nugget using a special Bamboo technology, based on optimized bamboo layers mixed with special composite materials that assure a responsive flex and make the board forgiving. This technology also assures a perfect balance between strength and weight.

it's fat and wide. [perfect for strapless fun, though strapless is not for everyone. it's also very fun to ride in light wind. it's skatey and loose and turns quick. it planes quickly and goes upwind smoothly....more
