Target production time for custom boards is 5 to 6 weeks.
After confirmation of order we will inform you about the actual production time.

High waves, high wind, high control
The Appleflap is 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 wave kiteboard designed for control when you need it most. If high wind and big waves is your playground, thans the Appleflap Noseless is your perfect partner!
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. And the single to double concave is 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 team likes this board a lot for freestyle as well. Soo small and light, when the wind is strong, the control is very welcome during freestyle as well. You can really push hard on the tail, giving loads of pop and release.
This board comes in the Hex-skin Extra strength construction as standard, an even stronger version can also be ordered, but that is only recommended for very heavy footed riders.
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.
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 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.
