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!

  2. Olivier (verified owner)

    A game changer ! Totally amazed by how efficient this board once at surface. I went through 4 boards lately but was not satisfied. This 80 appleslice v3 is it ! Feels like a 60L board in flight and is so reactive. The finish is superb ! I’m 90 kgs and this board feels super stable in the water thanks to its rails and extra length. Thanks to the customer support team who answered all my emails and did everything to ship me the board really fast !

    I have the 90 l board and really love the shape. Only complaint is board seems very fragile. Already has some pressure dents and will ding easily. I guess I will get good at repairing it which is pretty easy given the construction.

    Appleslice V3 Quick 360 – My Take
    Note: For purposes of this review, I weigh 183 lbs (83 kilos). I used Ozone Flux wings (3.6 and 5.0) and the Axis ART 999 with the 360 skinny stab and ultrashort advance fuselage.
    If the Appleslice V3 was actually an apple, the V3 wouldn’t fall far from the V2 tree. The V3 ’Slice takes the core features that made the V2 one of the best boards around, and absolutely juices them. The result: a noticeable improvement in all-around performance.
    I have had multiple sessions on both the 60 liter and 80 liter versions of the V3 ‘Slice. My first intention was to use the 80l as my daily driver and the 60l in large river swell conditions. In reality, the 60l has become my daily driver… and I use the 80 liter as my light wind weapon.
    The 80 liter is like a Fuji apple – sweet and consistent. The 60 liter is like a Honeycrisp. Still super sweet…but with a bit more pop. Their stiffness makes for a connected ride that improves the stall speed of my ART 999 – now, after bringing the foil to a nearly complete stop, a quick front foot pump sends me back on my way.
    It’s also worth noting that both boards were far less susceptible to pitch (aka see-sawing) than my prior boards.
    Both deliver instant feedback when you apply foot pressure. But neither overreacts to unintentional body movement – they go exactly where you want them to go. This gave me a massive leg-up on my weak-side turns. I found myself with improved carves and better coordination in weak-side switch stance.
    As you’d probably expect, pumping swells was easier on the smaller board. But that doesn’t mean you can’t pump the 80 liter. In fact, I have not yet reached the limits of the 80 liter board – it just rips. I put it to the test on the wake from a cargo ship, surfing for a ½ mile on waist-high swell before returning to my launch site with a huge smile.
    Putting the new lengths and bottom-shapes under the nose to the test, I touched both boards down into the faces of swells and troughs. Both boards had a nice “skipping” response back onto foil without submarining.
    I’ve never been a big believer in the idea that better boards make better riders. But now, I have officially changed my mind. And here’s why: After switching to the V3 ‘Slice, I get asked which board I’m riding. Not because I am particularly good, but because these boards have made me better. Granted, I am an Appletree Ambassador, but the hype is real. The ‘Slice V3 has improved my wing foiling game.
    About half the time, they ask me where I got it. Then they ask me this: “So, what size should I buy?” Here’s what I tell them. If you are using a board from two or more seasons ago (the shorter outlines), consider sizing down your current board by a minimum of 10 liters. So, if you were on an 80 liter, you’d want a 70 liter V3. The reason is that these boards are considerably more stable while sitting in the water and they get on foil with less wind. I went from a 75 liter to a 60 liter without any problem.
    On the other hand, if you feel more comfortable sticking with your current volume, that is ok too. I would be completely stoked if my only board was the 80 liter V3. It foils and performs like a smaller board with the added benefits of stability and getting me out in light wind.
    In short, both sizes of the V3 ‘Slice are awesome. These boards are made to last. You should expect it to be in your quiver for the long haul.
