Appletree x Glenn Pang/Majek foilboards
Appletree Surfboards is proud to present our shaper collaboration with Majek foilboards from Oahu Hawaii. Majek boards are designed by legendary northshore shaper Glenn Pang, who has been shaping high end surfboards for the world’s best surfers for years. He has now turned (part) of his attention to foiling and this hasn’t gone unnoticed. You can see his boards under the feet of many great foilers and surfers. His shapes are now available in our proven appletree full carbon construction, taking them to yet another level. And they are now easy to order from wherever you are located, because we ship boards all over the world.
Majek board come in clear carbon and with inserts as standard. They are made to order, we strive to keep production time under 8 weeks at all times. but feel free to contact us for an actual production lead time.
Appletree makes the following 3 shapes, in limited sizes. here is a short description from Glenn:
The most high performance of all the Majek models. It has a narrower nose and pulled in tail making it have a more surfing oriented feel and with a faster more whippy on the turns.
It has a single concave which helps with not sticking on the touchdowns and the kick tail lessens the tail touching on the turns. The aggressive beveled rails really cuts down on swing weight which accounts for the quicker response time on the turns.
Geared for more of an advanced rider due to the extra sensitive turning, twitchy nature of the board.
Paul Cooper’s signature model. This model is based off of hours of R and D with team rider Paul Cooper. Slightly fuller nose outline which does a couple things, adding a little more volume up forward helps with wave catching and also keeps the nose from over sinking when landing airs.
Beveled rails lessen swing weight and the kick tail helps reduce tail area for less tail touching on turns. This model also has a single nose concave which aid in wave catching and nose not sticking on nose touch downs.
The Essence is geared to the foiler who is looking for a more forward carvy feel to their board. It’s main attribute is the wider nose outline with a narrower tail, which makes it a good match with all of the high and mid aspect wings on the market.
It has a double concave on the nose which displaces water and helps with quicker take offs and also helps with not sticking on the nose touch downs.
The aggressive beveled rails helps lessen swing weight and the ultra thin tail brings down the thickness between the back foot and the mast, adding to a quicker response time.
50K CLOSED CELL FOAM
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.
100% CARBON FIBER CONSTRUCTION
All our foil boards are produced in our 100% carbon fiber construction. You want carbon fiber in a foil board for its stiffness and strength. A stiff board will give you the best control and response from the foil. Also stiffness will make pumping the foil much more effective. With carbon fiber we are able to make the board extremely strong while really light at the same time.
The most stress in a foil board is in the connection of the foil to the board. So this is where we put extra care and attention to make it the strongest connection available. The foil mount is CNC cut with the board, for the highest precision. We only use FUTURES oneshot boxes as they are the strongest in the industry. The boxes are placed in a panel of ultra high density PET honeycomb. This PET honeycomb itself is sandwiched in carbon again. Meaning there is carbon fiber both inside the board and outside. The honeycombs open structure ensures a solid connection between inside and outside, fusing everything together into a solid block.
Our lamination is completely different as well. We use a vacuum technique developed in house, where we layer all the carbon fiber, and reinforcements on the board dry. Then we extract all the air from the bag and inject the epoxy resin under pressure. This results in the tightest lamination possible, with the best ration between fiber and epoxy. It also gives 100% connection to the core so the boards do not delaminate. Extra patches under the feet prevent heel denting.
Inserts in our foil range are made from blocks of high density material. And can be customized position wise. These blocks are also fused to the core so they never pull out.
