Hi, awhile back I was able to try out a cabrinha nugget with the stock little fins in flat water and it was so so...I really would like to try one with surf fins in waves as I think it might fit my style. Anyone have experience with this? Also looking to possibly pick one up so lemme know if you have one. Thanks

Are you sure you don't mean the North Nugget? The cabrinha nugget is a wake skate.

Since noone else is piping up I'll tell you what I know - which isn't much. I've had my nugget out about 5 times mostly in flat to chop, but once in some 3 foot waves. Always with the stock fins - they aren't enough to keep it from sliding out in the wash, especially with the high buoyancy of the board. When I did turn onto some faces or chase them down from behind the high rocker seemed like it was paying off pretty well - buoyancy and rocker together giving a smooth ride on the face and able to slow down enough to make a good bottom turn or keep you up while you redirect the kite.

I think it'll be pretty good when I do put some deeper fins on, I just have been excited about using a different wave board this summer so I haven't gotten around to it. I think the thruster setup could pay out for driving it hard. It is wide enough that you're going need to actively position your front foot to go edge to edge.

You probably noticed that the board is heavy compared to a real wakeskate- it's really built tough. I hit a rock with it hard enough to destroy most boards and you can barely see the scratch - although the fin got splintered up pretty well.

I don't think they are selling for very much so get one and check back in on how it worked for you.

Cool, thanks for the reply., I'm really interested in hearing how it works once you do put the thruster fins on it. I'm really having difficulty finding one anywhere however. Please keep me/us updated!

The water season is going to wrap up here pretty soon so I don't know if I'll be getting a good wave test this year.

You might want to check with the guys at kiteboarding.com - they got one to me at a really good price this spring.
