RoyalOak's review of Mccoy Surfboards Nugget

“Nugget PotBelly 6'5”

Written on: 06/08/2011 by RoyalOak (1 review written)

The potbelly suits me, since I'm more a front foot surfer than a back foot. They take a bit of getting used to because of the volume, but I don't agree they that they are for average surfers or not steep waves. I really find it predictable and trustworthy in bigger stuff. The biggest I've had it out in is 10ft in Manly Sydney where I live, but I have a suspicion this board would suit waves like Cloudbreak. It doesnt look like it should work (its all round, short etc) but despite the looks, when you get it in big stuff it works. Early takeoffs, and down the line speed. It seems to pick it's own line and holds well into the wave face, particularly for me on the backhand.

Its not a pump and slash machine, its going with the wave energy, rather than needing the surfer to generate speed. Yet to prove it, but I really think this thing will like tubes. Went to Cloudbreak Fiji & the Maldives last year with my usual 6'8
