Quickly seeing threw the politics, rules and lies of this sport Link dropped all his sponsors and joined up with his best friend pro surfer Nathan Fletcher. On a road trip to Oregon in 1996 Nathan and Link came up with the METAL MULISHA, writing it on their stuff with marker was how it all began. The first M.M. stencil was made in Trigger Gumms garage.
Link went on to tell the whole MX INDUSTRY to fuck off and bulldozed his super cross track and teamed up with Brian Manley, Miky Dymond and designed the first ever freestyle MX course along with going to the hills and just making huge jumps. This new style of riding started getting huge editorial. He then met up with Brian Deegan that saw the vision of M.M. and had the same seek and destroy attitude wanting to crush the corporate world. Deegan and Link began hanging out and riding the M.M. compound. In 1999 Link and Deegan made the business decision to make M.M. a company with plans to destroy and crush the corporate world with their MULISHA.

The collision left Link with his frontal lobe of his brain ripped from his interskull, among other injuries the brain injury kept him down, but he refused to give up on riding and stayed underground only shooting photos and video on natural terrain hits that he would spend days alone shoveling despite the seizures from the helicopter wreck.
