Building upon the positive reaction, and suc- cessful of our PUKAS co-lab model, “The Link”, it only seemed natural to expand and extend The Link line to t even more well rounded re- quirements.

The most precedented way to expand the functional range of an already pro- ven model has been to simply o er it as a round tail.

So… we swapped Links squash tail to a round.

By leaving the width/surface area nearly the same under the rear foot, and only pulling the tail into a round, in the last few inches, the overall small to average wave perfor- mance remains intact, but the round tail allows greater range of control and per- formance in powerful, curvy ,and larger waves.

The new tail allows for precise pocket sur ng on a short and compact board design.

At the same time, we slightly reduced the ove- rall concave and adjusted the stock dimensions a bit, so if you rode a Link 5’6” squash tail, you would probably want to ride the round tail about 1” longer.
