The board that always surfs, from the weakest days to overhead waves

An all-round performance fun shape with characteristics taken from longboards and mini Simmons models. It’s like this board generates its own speed because as soon as you get up, you go! Slash your first turns earlier and maximise your session even in the short lived summer waves. The Jonagold is designed to be surfed small, but pay attention to the volume as you’ll want lots of it!


Control in choppy conditions

This updated version of the old Jonagold now has a swallow tail and a gentle bump in the rail above the front fins. Both characteristics give the board a little more hold in steep conditions and makes it easier to throw around the tail compared to the old Jonagold. For more classic longer line surfing we recommend the Big Apple.

The Jonagold swallow comes with a smooth concave deck to keep the small packed volume nicely under control while paddling in choppy conditions.

Fin recommendation:

Quad or Twin with small trailer fin


Surf construction


It’s Waterproof!

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. Any small crack or ding does not need immediate repair. Eventually a repair is advised, but you can first finish your well deserved session or trip!

50K foam is not easy to shape, all commercially available shaping machines will have great trouble shaping it and hand shaping is not possible. At Appletree surfboards we use our own shaping machines that we built and control ourselves. This way we can not only shape the foam, but we can also create channels and extreme contours, straight from the machine.


All our surfboards are laminated using our unique vacuum technology. After the core is shaped with our custom CNC and hand finished by our skilled craftsmen, it’s time for the lamination to give the board it’s final strength.

Surfboards can be finished in both glass fibre and carbon fibre, but both go through the same lamination. The laminate is applied to the blank dry, both the top and the bottom, additionally fin boxes and leash plugs are installed. Then the whole package goes into a vacuum bag and under pressure is injected with epoxy resin. This way the whole lamination is much tighter and requires almost no more work. This way of laminating results in the best fibre to epoxy ratio, leaving the boards both lighter and stronger. We are able to produce carbon boards at a weight under 2.5 kg while keeping them ultra strong. normal glass fibre boards finish under 3 kg  depending on the volume.

  1. Martijn van Hoek

    OMG. This board is AMAZING! It catches waves super easy, gets speed straight away when you take-off and it carves like crazy. I have never experienced a board creating so much speed out of the bottom turn and even out the cutback. It flows, it’s agile, It’s.. insane. I want 2!

  2. Ed (verified owner)

    Easily the best board I own. Asked for a custom size, and they were really helpful, and kept me updated on the progress! Thanks to all that put time and effort into making the board! Surfs incredible, easy to catch waves, and very responsive. Love it.

  3. Pim Juursema

    have a 5,8 “ custom , perfect for the dutch waves , realy easy to catch waves super responsive can not think of a better board for our conditions !!
    thanks Appletree !!!

    Looking for my next step in mastering the choppy North Sea, I couldn’t think of a better board enabling me to ride more waves and be more agile. Once you find the sweet spot, you’ll paddle into waves you weren’t able to catch before with a board similar in size & shape. It feels amazing doing turns with the speed it generates after take-off. I have a 6’0″ and I couldn’t ask for a better compromise between volume and maneuverability. Can’t wait to surf this beauty in bigger conditions! Thanks team Appletree!

  5. Kasper Boonstra

    One of the best one board quiver’s i own. Super fun, responsive and very fast, mine is a 5’5” 35L (i’m 6’3, 88KG) i surf it in knee high slob in the north sea to grinding well overhead in Hossegor. Mine is in standard strenght and has handled the most severe beatings like a champ for many years now! Super stoked on it and love the custom options! Thanks Appletree!!!
