Appletree surfboards are build to order lead time 4-5 weeks.

The AppleFlap is a more traditional wave kiteboard. Narrow tail with pinched rails for optimal control at high speeds and in bigger surf. With a narrow nose with a decent amount of rocker so the board doesn’t nosedive when coming down a wave. A board designed for control when you need it most.

We flattened the rocker in the middle part for the board for better upwind capability and down the line speed. You will be amazed with how easy this board rides upwind, it is very easy to ride on the spot. Also when jumping the narrow tail makes surprisingly easy to land on.

 

The Appleflap comes with the following options by default:

  • Standard color: yellow or blue
  • 3 fin boxes (FCS II or Futures)
  • Leash plug

Construction

Our Hex skin Glass boards are stronger and lighter than any fiberglas board we have produced before.

The boards feature a thin, lightweight honeycomb skin over the whole deck of the board.

Under the front foot there is a additional natural cork sandwich layer to minimise heel denting.

Appletree Surfboards’ own Hex skin Glass construction is stronger and lighter than anything we have produced before.

Our boards are hand build one by one by extremely skilled craftsmen in our own factory in Holland, using the best quality fibers and resins available. The boards feature a thin, lightweight honeycomb skin over the whole deck of the board. This gives the deck a good resistance against denting and impact, but it’s not as stiff and hard as wood or bamboo sandwich layers.

Under the front foot there is a additional natural cork sandwich layer to minimise heel denting. The board is wrapped in a precisely engineered buildup of pure Glass fibre. The Fibers are running in a total of 5 different directions, to produce a board that feels extremely lively and gives a super direct feedback to the rider.

The HSG construction features the same waterproof foam core that is used in all or boards, so in the unlikely event of a puncture of the skin, there is no water penetration and the fix is easy.

The epoxy resin used has a high organic content and the HSG, like all our boards are Sustainable Surf approved.
