The Appleflap is a modern a approach to a more traditional wave kiteboard. Narrow tail with pinched rails for optimal control at high speeds and in bigger surf. 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.
The advantages of having a noseless board are clear. It takes a bit of getting used to not seeing the pointy nose, but less weight, easy travel and a slightly looser feel make the noseless version a good option. The back 2/3 of the board are exactly the same as the normal Appleflap, including the rocker. We only added a slight flip in the stubby nose to prevent it from diving.
We flattened the rocker in the middle part for the board for better upwind capability and down the line speed. Single to double concave for control precision surfing. 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 it a surprisingly stable platform to land on.

Our standard hex-skin construction, consists of the 50K foam core, the core is wrapped in a first layer of structural fibreglass, in a 45 degree orientation. This to keep the board as flexible as possible while making a very strong base. The deck is now layered with a honeycomb layer for more impact resistance. The bottom is left without honeycomb, again to maintain maximum flex.
Hex-skin Carbon is similar in composition to the hex-skin Glass boards. But instead of glass we use 100% carbon fibre, there is no glass hidden underneath the top layer of carbon. Using carbon makes the board lighter and it makes it stick to your feet even better. Because the board is so light, it flows over the chops a lot better than you might expect.
To give the carbon boards their unique look the deck is finished with a tinted resin, that can be customised, pick your own color or mix multiple for a truly one of a kind board.
