DHD Margo Nugget Review

What the DHD site says about the Margo Nugget:

‘The Nugget is one of the classic models that just keeps evolving, Margo and I just keep refining it to make that perfect big guy performance surfboard.

Lately we have just been working on getting the right volume for paddling and flow through turns, by increasing the nose width. The distribution of foam allows for easy paddling without sacrificing performance, you don’t have to go long to keep up your paddle, so you can keep your surfing in the pocket.

The pulled round tail allows for heaps of grip under pressure, so you can surf this model in small and large surf. The Nugget is a great option for Indo, where Margo does a lot of the testing for this model, as well as the East Coast of Australia.’

What people think about it:

‘The board performs really well and I am extremely happy with it. I have found the rocker to be a little flat on steep takeoffs, especially with the board tending to take off late on smaller waves. There is no issue on bigger waves as they have the power to propel the board more for a sooner takeoff. The board turns well but is a little sluggish compared to my narrower and thinner boards but I expected that and am happy with it.’ – Glenn on Board Cave

‘It goes extremely well! It’s easily the best board I’ve ever had and it has made my confidence go through the roof since I started surfing it a month or so ago. Goes really well in heavy beach breaks, reefs, points and also handles the small fuller waves with ease. I’m so happy with the purchase!’ – EBEN on Board Cave

‘Have tried a 6’4 DHD Margo Nugget (nothing like a McCoy, just FYI) this morning in lumpy stuff and find every bump is something that wants to throw me off. Potentially my stance is too narrow and we are talking a hell of a lot different board but it’s definitely a personal preference directly related to your style/stance.’ – Kookster on Magic SeaWeed Community Forum
