Appleslice Wing foil board
Appleslice Wing board
Light, responsive, compact, fast. That pretty much sums up the Appleslice Wing foil board!
Wing surfing, or wing foiling, has taken a huge leap lately. And so has the understanding of what equipment is best to ride. We have made plenty prototypes of this wing foil board to find a shape that works for most riders in most conditions. We have made 5 sizes to accommodate beginner to advanced.
Real experienced riders might find it possible to get started on a super low volume board. But most riders will want a board with a volume in Liters around their body weight in KG. Better riders can go slightly under their weight and beginners a bit over. Also for easy cruising in light winds and on flat water a bigger size is much easier to handle.
The shape of the Appleslice Wing is compact and fairly thick. This is to get as many liters as possible in the compact shape. This compact outline and short length is really important for wing foiling. Imagine a big board balancing on a small foil mast. This is a huge swing weight, that slows all movement down and makes quick turns impossible. For learning this can be an advantage as it is more stable, but the learning curve in wing foiling is pretty quick, so you will not enjoy a big shape for long.
The bottom of the Appleslice Wing features a 4 way “boat hull” in the front. This splits the water and makes it possible to accelerate quickly. The middle part has a 3 stage with a flatter part in the middle. This provides a quick planing surface, but it is small enough that it will not stick to the water’s surface when releasing and rising on the foil. Behind the foil box, there is an aggressive kick that further helps with release.
The deck is concave, to lock your knees in when you get going. It also gives a real secure platform to stand on. The Appleslice Wing has inserts for foot straps as standard and comes with a comfy 3mm EVA traction on the whole deck. The board is more than strong enough to do crazy airs and jumps. Which makes wing surfing so fun!
The Appleslice Wing is super light and stiff, to give the best response. You can really feel the foils every move and control accordingly. We used our experience in building the lightest and strongest carbon kiteboards to now also build the lightest and strongest foil board possible.
Two Futures US boxes connect the foil to your carbon foil board. The boxes are positioned in the most common configuration at 90mm to accept most foils in the market. This connection system is the strongest and lightest available. The boxes are set in a high density PET honeycomb, that in term is sandwiched in carbon. So there is carbon fibre inside the board as well. This makes the foil connection ultra strong, and really stiff for the perfect energy transfer from board to foil.
The Appleslice Wing comes with scratch proof matte finish, in white with the carbon shining through.
It has inserts for foot straps as standard and comes with a comfy 3mm EVA traction on the whole deck.
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.
