By far the easiest paddler in the Chemistry board line. Extra width in the nose through the midpoint allows the Nucleus to be one of the easiest boards to get into waves and maintain speed down the line. But don't let it's full, round nose confuse the fact that this model has great maneuverability. It's high performance tail is a single fluted winged swallow which holds into the wave extremely well during rail to rail transitions. This board is great for the experienced surfer trying to "cheat" in smaller waves, or the beginner who can order it larger.
