Pukas The Link surfboard 5ft 8 FCS II - White
The Pukas HQ is located in the depths of the Basque Country and is a family focused company with surfing coursing through its veins. Pukas Surf has a rep for dreaming, designing and constructing some of the most exciting shapes and models to hit the surfboard market in years, from all-out grovel boards like the Resin Cake to high performance chargers like the Foamball Step Up. Since the first board was shaped back in the early 70’s Pukas has used its local knowledge and a worldwide outlook to sate their thirst for surfing and surfboard manufacture.
Matt has been visiting and working with the Olatu factory for years, he's been able to paddle out at many of the local breaks and get to know the local crew. Matt said; "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 surfboard for a good surfer to chuck around, smack the lip and generally surf radically in small clean beach break conditions.
Matt has embraced and led the shorter and wider surfboard revolution, bringing us his ‘Domesticated’ collection including game changers like the Lazy Boy and Plank. For the Link Matt started out 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.
The Link has a broad appeal and when the sizing and volume is tinkered with will serve anyone from the featherweight, frothing grom who just wants to punt and bust his fins out on every turn to the older guy who’s water-time has been eaten into by kids and work and needs a bit more volume but still wants to perform.
