Appleslice V3 Wing foil board

Appleslice V3: the most versatile wing foil board

Introducing the latest and greatest Appletree, The Appleslice V3, the most versatile wing foil board! Whether you’re ready to upgrade your ride, get your first board, or looking to fine tune your wave riding- and freestyle skills, the Appleslice V3 has what you need. From beginner to advanced rider the V3 is perfect for advancing your riding skills, it’s shaped for progression.

Key design features 

Narrow and longer! Plus better low wind performance. The optimised rocker ensures super easy touch downs and early planning. We keep this “long and narrow” theme  in the whole size range. So also with the bigger sized Slice’s, you can carve hard. Now also bigger riders can experience the same performance as lighter riders due to the finely tuned dimensions of each board in the size range.  

This new version of the Appleslice draws inspiration from the faster Skipper downwind and wing models Appletree makes. These shapes are longer with a smoother bottom contour to help water flow more efficiently so the board reaches top speed quicker. 

The bottom starts with a displacement hull design which forces the water to the sides. It helps the board come to the surface quicker in the low volume sinker sizes. After the displacement hull the bottom flows into a flatter middle section, which makes the Appleslice V3 much more stable than the Skipper boards. 

We pulled up the hard rail edge much further up towards the nose which helps with water release and taking off in lighter winds. When you hit the wave with the rail of the board the Appleslice V3 hardly slows down. To further help with wave performance, the tail of the V3 is quite a bit narrower than the previous version, this helps with the ability to turn in waves. 

The top rail has a small radius which gives it a nice wide platform on the deck, also this harder rail makes the board easier to grab.

Foil placement flexibility

The foil boxes in the Appleslice V3 are placed slightly forward and they feature the new Appletree’s long foil boxes for more foil placement flexibility.

Placing the foil further in the boxes balances the board out and reduces swing weight. This helps with tight turns on the wave and on flat water. Moving the foil further back makes it more stable. Plus it helps with controlling the lift of the foil better. 

Including deck pad and inserts

The Appleslice V3 comes with comfortable pads with plenty of grip and a kick tail so you can feel where you are on the board. It has inserts in almost all imaginable positions. So you can fine tune your strap position to match your preference. 

New on the V3 are the off-set positions for your back foot. This gives you more leverage over the foil mast and that really helps in toe side turns when trapped in. 

Choosing your size

The Appleslice V3 comes in many sizes, from small and sinking 40 L to 60 L to higher volume boards up to 100 L and everything in between. 

We recommend the smaller sizes for accomplished riders that are looking for the pinnacle of performance. These sizes also work really well as a crossover surf foil board and for use with an electric assist foil, like the Foildrive. 

Going up in size, the volumes are sinkers for heavier riders and floaters for lighter riders. We have a long explanation video about which volume, sinking or floating, works best for which rider and weight range.

Finally the floating volume sizes are great for intermediate riders who are looking to progress their riding but still want the stability and security that a floating board brings. Experienced riders will find these boards incredibly good in light wind conditions as the low wind release is exceptional.

 

 

 

 

 

FOIL CONSTRUCTION

 

50K CLOSED CELL FOAM

It all starts with the core and every board we make starts with a foam core of our very own 50K closed cell foam. This foam is formalized exclusively for us, it is not used in any other board in the market.

The foam can withstand 50.000 kg per square meter, while staying very light, and most of all very flexible. Another plus of our 50K foam is that it is closed cell, meaning that the foam will not take in water, and the board will not blow out when it gets hot.

 

100% CARBON FIBER CONSTRUCTION

All our foil boards are produced in our 100% carbon fiber construction. You want carbon fiber in a foil board for its stiffness and strength. A stiff board will give you the best control and response from the foil. Also stiffness will make pumping the foil much more effective. With carbon fiber we are able to make the board extremely strong while really light at the same time.

The most stress in a foil board is in the connection of the foil to the board. So this is where we put extra care and attention to make it the strongest connection available. The foil mount is CNC cut with the board, for the highest precision. We only use FUTURES oneshot boxes as they are the strongest in the industry.  The boxes are placed in a panel of ultra high density PET honeycomb. This PET honeycomb itself is sandwiched in carbon again. Meaning there is carbon fiber both inside the board and outside. The honeycombs open structure ensures a solid connection between inside and outside, fusing everything together into a solid block.

Our lamination is completely different as well. We use a vacuum technique developed in house, where we layer all the carbon fiber, and reinforcements on the board dry. Then we extract all the air from the bag and inject the epoxy resin under pressure. This results in the tightest lamination possible, with the best ration between fiber and epoxy. It also gives 100% connection to the core so the boards do not delaminate. Extra patches under the feet prevent heel denting.

Inserts in our foil range are made from blocks of high density material. And can be customized position wise. These blocks are also fused to the core so they never pull out.

  1. T.J. Warmerdam (verified owner)

    I bought the 90L Appleslice V3.
    This board is perfect: quick on foil, gentle on touchdowns and plug&play.
    I can not find anything negative.
    Thank you Appletree surfboards!
