If I am 6 ft 5 and weigh 240lbs is the Nugget Big enough for me? What do you all think?
I think it depends what you want the board to do - no design will do everything
As I have posted in a couple of other threads, I use a very small, (4'10" x 18") thin directional board with a pretty flat rocker line & surf-style fins. At 180 lbs I find it planes up in around 10 - 12 knots & is comfortable in very high winds/chop/waves. It has been the only board I have used in the last 3 years.
My guess would be that the Nugget would provide the same degree of early planning as my board does for me. However, it's not going to provide the super early planning that a raceboard or freerace design will provide - which might mean an extra 2 or 3 knots on the bottom end. On the other hand, it's going to be more fun than a raceboard (obviously) or a freerace board in stronger winds & waves. My guess is that, other than the very
low end, it would be a good one-board solution for you - if you value "rider simplicity".
I do think the Nugget would benefit from having a 3 strap option to maximize control & power: 3 straps for general riding jibing & jumping, strapless for small to moderate surf, 2 straps for bigger waves & closed out conditions.
