I found a used 2012 nugget for $400 USD. Pics are attached of the problem areas. Possible delamitation?

Right now I'm leaning towards this or a used 2012 North X-Surf (5'11"). Any comments as to which would be better for light wind directional for me, a 220 lbs person?

I know used Nuggets are hard to find.

The 2012 Nuggets had delam problems.

I would offer him $ 200 to take it off his hands, patch it up, ride it until it disintegrates, and move on...

Hey guys, im looking at pucking up a near new 2013 Nugget. Were there any delamination issues with them or did North fix the problem they had on the 2012 boards?

Thanks EZ, thats what i was hoping to hear. They look like a lot of fun in light wind & will fit in nicely with my Proseries.

Hello, looks like NKB is just following Firewire surfboard in shape design.

My question is, does the Nugget track like a narrower traditional surfboard or slide around.

I tried the Cabrinha Subwoofer and hated it, it was so skatey, like the fins were not there.
