The original Missing Link filled the gap between a shortboard and a step up. What we found out is that it also works really well as a mid-length 6'8" at longer. With a lower entry rocker, beak nose and wide point forward template, you can get into waves easy and early. The board is fast and maneuverable allowing it to work in a wide range of waves, from waist high to well overhead and bigger depending on the size ordered. The fins are placed further back than a traditional fish and a round pin and long rail line create plenty of hold when the waves get steep and hollow. Originally designed as a twin or twin with trailer, this board can also be ordered as a five fin option and the tail can be ordered as a round pin or baby swallow.
