The Link, a fitting name for a board which allows riders to link the energy from the ocean & glide endlessly from an upwind point to a down wind point with only a paddle.
A huge amount of design element has gone into ensuring that paddle ups are made easy. A ridge runs down the entire underside of the boards giving the rider the locked in tracking they need before gaining enough board speed to get on the foil. A relatively flat rocker line & narrow widths / longer board line promoting initial board speed when the rider needs it.
Once up on the foil, you are relying on a light-weight, yet stiff board to give you the best chances of linking bumps & remaining on the foil on your down wind journey. The link is built in our proven moulded core / carbon sandwich tech & available in 4 sizes from 5’9 @91L right through to 6’10 @ 128L for the heavier DW foilers! Fitted with 16” foil tracks to give the needed adjustability.
The link models can also cross over to a ideal SUP surf foil board.
SUP foiling is the hardest sport out there. I spent three years SUP-flailing around on my 110L wing board trying to get rides. Once in a while, on a super-windy day with big swell, I’d get a short ride. Then I tried the Link 118. A few quick paddle strokes, a big gust of wind, and a medium river swell and I was up. Completely surprised, I foiled out and fell over. That’s all it took. I’m sold. This board is amazing for SUP-foil. I’m 78 kilos of fit-ish dad bod, and I say the Link is magic. This board is as stable as something much wider, and it picks up speed like me chasing after fresh-baked pie. A friend of mine (88 kilos) also flailed for three years. He got up on his first try on this board. If our non-pro, cookie-loving selves have a shot at mastering this sport because of this board, you too have a chance. Get one. It’s awesome.
