The ultimate crossover wave kite surfboard
Meet the Klokhouse, your ultimate crossover wave kite surfboard. The one board quiver for everyone who kites as well as surfs. Or for the kiter that focusses on wave riding. Where the kite is used mainly to get into the wave and the boards needs to surf like a normal surfboard.
It’s really like kitesurfing on your everyday surfboard. It has the same flex, weight and feel that everyone loves when surfing. Now available in a board that can cope with the abuse that kitesurfing brings to a board.
The Klokhouse is based on a traditional high performance shortboard with a little added volume with in the middle, to make it friendly for average surfers. It has a fair bit of rocker in the nose which is flattened out in the tail. This makes the board plane earlier and helps upwind performance.
Medium to thin rails make it grip the water and give you control at high speeds which are typical when kitesurfing. The squash tail is really thin for optimal feel with the water. The bottom features a single concave throughout, which gives enormous drive and control.
The Klokhouse comes with the Kite+ hex-skin construction as standard. If you want more strength, for freestyle and bigger jumps, go for the optional extra sandwich layer under the front foot.
Choosing a surfboard and board size for both kitesurfing and surfing is tricky, as you usually kite on a smaller board than you surf on. In this case, choose the board as you would a normal surfboard. You wil probably kite on a size too big, but that is way less of a problem than surfing on a size too small.
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.
