Applino

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 flax is very nice in strapless kitesurfing!

    Been riding the Applino 5’3 carbon in Cape Town for one season, amazing, predictable and shreds like no other board out there!
