I bought my Nugg secondhand as my first paddleboard after renting just about every week for a summer. I got it close to the end of the summer, but with enough time left in the season to get a lot of water time. I've had it for just under a year and have not regretted the purchase. The Nugg has carried me on slow moving rivers, on bays (Delaware and Chesapeake), and in light surf on the Atlantic. It's not a touring board by any stretch, but it's a fun, responsive paddle and is a blast to ride on low, mushy surf and on wakes in the bay. It's not a very stable ride for a beginner, but forced me to get better quickly.
I'm 5'9'' and about 150lbs and it works well for me. Getting up on top of the car was an adventure when I first started, but it got easier... having the board slightly shorter helps.
- easy to carry (on the car and in person)
- a good starter board for learning to SUP surf
- smooth ride in rough conditions
- occasionally nose dives in choppy water
- it can be a discouraging ride for a newcomer
- recreational paddling
- light surf

Great all around board for surfing and touring. Very stable for a small SUP. The board is easy to surf on but not to slow when going for a paddle. Great board to learn on.
