Description: Burton Nug Snowboard

Drop down in size and crank the fun with a livelier, poppier, and all around easier freestyle experience.
Featuring Raduction for a more potent riding experience, the critically-acclaimed Nug lets you downsize 8 to 10cm for a quicker, more maneuverable ride. Optimized geometry means it will out-tweak, out-maneuver, and out-spin your normal board due to a complete retooling of shape, flex, and effective edge that gives you more board in a smaller package. The option of choosing between the steady stability of Flat Top or the hybrid rocker/camber snap and float of Flying V™ only adds to the habit-forming pleasure of riding this exotic freestyle subspecies.

Very happy with the board and its performance
I've been riding for years and have other Burton boards so I was comfortable taking a chance on the Nug. Actually I was chomping at the friggin bit to get one because Iheard good things about it. I'm a little on the heavy side for the 146 so I snagged the 150. I normally ride a 156-161.

This board is a total blast to ride. They aren't kidding when they claim it rides like a normally sized board. The edge-to-edge transfer speed is excellent, the edges hold perfect for craving, but the board flex and size make butters, presses and nose/tail wheelies easier and so much more fun! The board spins like a top too. The pop for ollies and jumps is surprising!! You would not think a tiny little shred stick like this could have the whole package but it does. It can even hold an edge on pipe walls, but I am by no means a pipe shredder, I just play in the kiddie pipes.

I have ridden it in 8-12 inches of powder (top-of-the-knee-deep) without modifying my stance. I let a beginner-intermediate rider friend try and and he went from coasting runs on his old sled to machin runs, doing wall-hits, butters slashes and taking small jumps in one day!

If you are looking at this as your go to stick, then stop waiting and order the da** thing. You will not be disappointed.

the nug is the all around best board for buttering, sliding, and getting funky chicken on the mountain. great pop, good feel, and works good in powder too. rode the 2012 for 3 years and while this model has a slightly different feel its still great. more pop than previous years.

Hey guys! So I'm 5'10 and weigh in @ 154 lbs. I'm super excited to purchase my first Nug board but should I grabb the 142 or 146??
A shopper on Apr 8, 2015
Though the Nug is to be ridden shorter Burton suggests the 146 is going to be the best option. I will leave posted for others.
Im thinking of purchasing the 142cm...any chance you can tell me the exact color scheme on the top and bottom? Thank you
Mark C on Jan 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Aloha Bruddah!

I have the 146cm....

Top - camo with black and shades of gray
Bottom - black with NUG in rasta colors

I am 6,0 160lbs size 12 boot can I ride a nug?
A shopper on Sep 17, 2015
The simple answer is YES you can ride the Nug. Your specs put you between sizes.... which means you are going to have to rely on your own preference a little to decide. Going just by your weight Burton suggests the 146cm board is optimal, but at 6' that seems a bit extreme. I think the 150cm will be better.... plus at 25.5cm width if you 'duck' your feet a little you will have no heel or toe drag problems.
I'm a intermediate rider who doesn't do much park mostly groomers but looking to do more park this season.. Would you recommend the flat top or Flying V for a more catch free ride ? I'm upgrading from a dc ply
A shopper on Oct 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Burton Nug Flat Top Snowboard will be more stable than a board with a Flying V profile shape.
Hey just bought this board. What type of bindings do I have to buy ?
jake the snake on Dec 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hey Jake, Craig is right. Look for bindings that are compatible with Burton's channel system. All Burton bindings are.
what bindings can you use?
A shopper on Dec 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi! Right, Joshua. Any Burton bindings will work.
I'm 150-165 5'8". should I get the 142 or 146 bug?
A shopper on Jan 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm 150-165lb 5'7" and use a 154. Go with the 146
I'm an intermediate rider who is super light weight will this be a good all mountain board/park board?
Dolan on Nov 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I would think so since that is where this board is designed to excell. Of course check the sizing chard to make sure you get the right length for your height/weight.
Is this s good board for a beginner?
Luke W on Dec 21, 2015
For the most part I would say no. This is a really specific board that is designed to be ridden short. It will be a bit weird to learn on. Something more like this Burton Blunt will be a better board to develop some skills with:
Hello. I am 5,7 and was wandering what size would be a recomended ?
jake f on Nov 9, 2015
How much do you weigh.... weight is essential.
Is there any rocker to the tip and tail of this board and if so, how far does it go?
A shopper on Nov 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi! There is rocker from the channel system, reaching out. Enough to lift up the contact points on the board. The Nug also has a scooped nose and tail.
I'm 6'2" 220. With a size 13 boot. Looking to go with a smaller board. I currently ride a lib tech 161. Will the Nug 154 hold me?
Michael C on Oct 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The 154cm Burton Nug Snowboard has a weight range of 170-210+ lbs. I'm about 215 lbs and rode the Nug a few seasons back, the 154cm size was perfect.
I'm 6' and weigh 170 lbs use 155cm and want to change to be nugs flat top 146 cm just wondering, Could i use my own binding of Ride XL or i have to buy EST binding from Burton only. I want to do more in the park and more freestyle this season, which board should i get?
BEmore on Aug 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Good Day Kiattisak,
First, Burton suggests that you could ride the 146 Nug... but you would be at the top of the chart. They suggest that the 150cm length would be more ideal. If your Ride XL bindings are the 2015 version they will be compatible to the Channel. If they are older you can get Ride Channel Discs that will convert them. Simply google 'Ride Channel Disc,' or contact Ride Snowboards themselves. Either way you can make it work!!
Hey, i ride a 154cm board and i was thinking of getting the nug. does this mean i should not get it in a size 154cm? or because it is suppose to feel bigger do i get a smaller size?
nick f on Jul 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yep, the Burton Nug Snowboard is designed to be ridden s8-10cm shorter than you'd normally ride. The 146cm size would fit you best.
I'm 5'9, 132. I'm replacing my Burton Process Flying V, 155 with this. I'm more into park riding than freeriding, but I want a board than can still handle groomers. I also want it to be easy to press and butter. Should I get the 142 or 146, and flat camber or Flying V?
Aidan on Feb 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Check out the 142cm Burton Nug Snowboard in the Flat Top profile shape. It'll be more fun than you can handle.
Hello! Can I get 146 nug and install large bindings with 11 size boots???
A shopper on Feb 13, 2015
There is no Wide version of the Nug so we are stuck with standard widths. From that, the 146 Nug has a waist of 25.4cm which is close. Generally I suggest that riders with size 11+ boots ride boards that have a waist width of 25.8cm or wider. Basically, you could ride it, but you are going to have a little overhang.
Im 6 feet tall and 150 lbs which size should i get for park riding?
Trent on Jan 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Trenton,

The Burton Nug Snowboard features Nugraduction Technology that allows the rider to down size the board 8-10cm from a normal length board.

The 150cm Nug has a weight range from 135-175 lbs., you fit best within the 150cm's weight range. Get the 150cm Burton Nug Snowboard.
Tim W on Jan 29, 2015
Indeed this is the Burton Nug. Can I help with anything?
I am 5'11" and 175 lbs and ride mostly mammoth what size nug would you suggest? Ride a 157 x8 now
A shopper on Jan 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Burton Nug is designed to be ridden 8-10cm shorter. The 150cm weight range is 155-195 lbs., you fit right in the middle of that. Get the 150cm Burton Nug Snowboard.
Can i send the board back if i don't get the right bottom? Is there a way for me to choose the bottom i want?
little lee on Dec 6, 2014
Good Day. This is always a thing with the bases on snowboards. Snowboard companies will never guarantee what base will arrive, thus we cannot. DJ has a good explanation here: (about half way down). That said, you can return your board, no worries:
If im into more freestyle should i get a 142 or a 146 and should i get the v rocker nug or the flat top nug?
A shopper on Nov 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Nug is all about downsizing 8-10 cm from your normal size - what do you normally ride? Like, I usually ride a '62 or a '64 in regular boards, would ride the '50 or the '54 in a Nug.

I personally like the Flat Top Nug, cuz it provides a little more snap...
