    EPS/epoxy vacuum bagged composite made in Florida, US. Durable and lively. Can't recommend them enough.

    Mike Daniel used to shape for Coil and can make you whatever you want. The website is severely lacking in content, but that's only because the underground hype has been so high that they don't need to market themselves.
    +1 on Coil. I think he meant to say Mike Daniels used to shape for WRV, now he shapes for Coil.

    If you like the Nugget, you might like these models:

    1. The firewire dominator i would think you can't go wrong with for the east coast waves. Top shortboard on www.surfscience.com by user reviews
    2. Cross the spitfire out.
    3. The wrv nugget. Not a east coast board cross that off
    4. The wrv Wambat looks like money also with the firewire dominator. Good looking shape. Looks fun.
    5. I would add the stretch fletcher quad as a maybe but i think the 1dominator or 2wambat is the best choice.
    The End

    Im pretty sure the wrv nugget is more of an east coast shape. The va beach wrv is selling 7 nuggets to every chronic. Im thinking their on to something. Its supposed to be rideable from knee to head high. The dominater is also an awesome shape but a bit more expensive.

    Why is the WRV nugget not an east coast board?

    -Made on the east coast
    -Marketed by WRV for east coast conditions

    It also happens to look like a great shape for the kind of smallish a-frames the mid atlantic gets all the time.

    By the way so does that Coil pictured above...(which happens to look a lot like the nugget)

    Oops, yup thanks for correcting that. It's Mike Daniel though not Daniels.

    First of all, the COIL looks Bad A$$...
    I found a 5'9" Nugget that I will mostlikely go with (I can't say where or somebody might grab it). I have been eyeing this board up for a while now.
    It was difficult finding a local surf shop that carries WRV. Benthany has one, but too small for me. K-Coast has a couple, but are too large. The next available place is WRV in Virginia, which is about three hours away.

    Thanks for all your input - I'll keep you all posted on how my new WRV Nugget 5'9" x 20" x 2 3/4" rides.

    Personally, I think if your going to stay in the 5'9"-5'10" range I would not ride a board 2 1/2" or 2 3/4" thick. I am 5'9" and 170 lbs so we're pretty similar. I think that's going to be way too floaty. If you choose to go with a 5'9 or 5'10, my suggestion is to not go any wider than 20" and either go with 2 5/16 or 2 3/8 thickness. I ride a Rusty Pirhana (mainly for knee-chest but can be ridden in bigger surf), 5'10 x 19 1/2 x 2 1/4 that I got when I weighed 155-160ish lbs. I'm looking for a new one now but due to the extra poundage I gained and the added weight of a wetsuit which is pretty much year round I will up the thickness to either a 2 5/16 or 2 3/8 max. Just my two cents. Good luck.
