Pukas The Link surfboard 5ft 0 FCS II - White
Matt has worked with the guys at Olatu and Pukas for many years, he's surfed a lot of the local waves and mingled with the locals, "there has always been a link between myself and Pukas. So after almost 20 years of travelling the Basque Country, and shaping at PUKAS, we finally made our link official and have designed this collaboration model…. The Link. We thought it would be fun to make this link official and do a special little project…a special board. Specifically for small punchy beach breaks."
The Link is a super fun and skatey shortboard but with dialled in performance as well. The Link is definitely not a cruiser, or a low rocker groveller, but a board with some proper rocker and concaves. This is a board for a good surfer to chuck around, smack the lip and generally surf radically in small clean beach break conditions
Matt has been at the forefront of the wider and shorter board revolution and has always tried to execute this with performance in mind, not just fashion or retro. Matt started with his ShortRound and made it a little more racy. The nose was pulled in and more tail rocker was added so the board could fit into faster and more dumpy waves. To work with the rocker, Matt added a lot more concave from the centre back through the fins. The concave gets up and going and fast, as well as increases rail curve, allowing for quick radical direction changes.
When the Link is sized properly, with the right amount of volume, it will provide a wide range of riders, from a 5ft 2 rip-stick, for a young ripper to punt airs and break the tail out, right up to 40 litters of Domestic high performance carving and snapping to keep the middle aged bloke with kids and limited time in the water.
