APPLETREE SURFBOARDS - Appleflap Noseless
Want control in high wind and big waves?
This directional kiteboard is all about big waves and big carves. If howling wind and big waves is your playground, then the Appleflap Noseless is your perfect partner!
The Appleflap Noseless is a directional wave kiteboard designed for control when you need it most. The curve follows the shape of bigger and more hollow waves, making the board perfect for those conditions. The Appleflap is a modern approach to a more traditional wave kiteboard.
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.
Flip in the stubby nose
We flattened the rocker in the middle part of the board for better upwind capability and down the line speed. The back 2/3 of the board is exactly the same as if the board had a nose, including the rocker. We only added a slight flip in the stubby nose to prevent it from diving when coming down a wave.
Single to double concave
The Appleflap Noseless has a single to double concave for control and precision surfing. You will be amazed with how easy this board rides upwind, it is very easy to ride on the spot.
Narrow tail with pinched rails
It has a narrow tail with pinched rails for optimal control at high speeds and in bigger surf.
Waiting for the next set and finding a nice ramp to take off? The narrow tail makes it a surprisingly stable platform to land on when jumping. To further aid strapless tricks, the Appleflap Noseless features a grab rail in the deck.
The Appleflap Noseless in meant to be ridden small and with power in the kite. When in doubt about the size, contact us for advise!
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.
