Appleflap

Traditional high performancekiteboard

The Appleflap features a modern 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.

Board Features

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.

This board is all about big waves and big carves. The curve follows the shape of bigger and more hollow waves, making the board perfect for those conditions. This board is ordered a lot with foot strap inserts, a welcome addition in serious conditions.

Both the Hex-skin Glass as well as the Hex-skin Carbon versions are extremely strong. The Carbon version is quite a bit lighter and carbon naturally has a quicker response and better pop of the waters surface. The Glass version is heavier, still very strong and with a softer more comfortable flex to dampen chop.  The Klokhouse comes with the normal strength hex-skin construction. If you want more strength, for freestyle and bigger jumps. go for the optional extra sandwich layer under the front foot. When ordered with inserts, the extra strength is standard and included.

Hex-Skin construction

Hex-skin Glass

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.

All normal Klokhouse and Appleflap boards come with a single honeycomb layer. Optionally the glass boards can be ordered with an additional layer of honeycomb, specially for heavy footed riders. Normal use is fine without this layer, but sometimes you want this added durability. This is why ALL BOARDS UPTO 5’5” come WITH the additional layer of honeycomb. Because the smaller boards are used much more for strapless freestyle. 

We also use this extra layer to mount optional inserts, because riding with inserts adds a lot of stress to a very small and specific area of the board.

The board is  fully wrapped in another layer of fibreglass in the 0 and 90 degree orientation. The whole board, including fin boxes, leash plug and graphics is now pulled in a tight vacuum to compress all the layers together and to pressed onto the core for maximum connection. The board is then encased in the most sustainable epoxy resin available, this resin is tinted to give the boards their unique appearance. There are many colors available and even more on request! You can fully customise your boards appearance so it is unique and there is no one like it anywhere. After the boards are cured, they are hand finished and checked one by one to make sure the meet our exact standards, and you get the board of your dreams!

Hex-skin Carbon

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.
