Paulino Pereira Pro model
The Applino is designed to match Paulino Pereira’s style of strapless kitesurfing as much as possible. Explosive and powerful, yet stylish and smooth, best for kiting in the waves or performing strapless freestyle tricks in flat water. It’s Paulino’s go-to board in the World-tour contests, a reliable partner in all conditions.
It’s the ultimate advanced allrounder. The rocker is moderate with a decent kick in the last foot of the board to improve responsiveness. With a single concave running into a V in behind the front fins. All there to make the board loose and snappy while maintaining control.
The rails are thin and pinched, this helps with cutting through chops and it helps to retain control at high speeds. Overall the board is thin throughout. But wide, with enough planing area to get up and going with lower wind speeds. The board has a deep grab channel in the deck to aid in strapless freestyle tricks. The tail has a pulled in with a distinct hip at the front fins, together with the rocker and V in the bottom. This makes the board turn on a dime, but some intermediate riders might find this nervous, they should look at the Klockhouse noseless as an alternative.
If strapless freestyle is your game then go for the full carbon version. This version stronger, and it gives you more pop off the water, it’s ultra precise for landing the hardest tricks. If you mainly do wave riding then the Hex-skin Glass might be the board for you. It offers a bit more flex which dampens the vibrations and offers a more comfortable ride, but it’s a little less durable, but flex is very nice in strapless kitesurfing!
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.
