Triple concave chop destroyer
Meet the Malus Domestica! Appletree’s allround kiteboard for small waves and freestyle. It eats anything you throw at it.
The Malus Domestica is the product of a long search for the perfect crossover for guys who ride freestyle a lot, but sometimes find a wave to smash. The wider tail template and parallel rails make it very easy to ride. With a lot of direct response and it goes upwind like no other. The wider platform is stable to stick the hardest tricks and landings. The bottom features a unique triple concave, this makes the board very stable upwind and through chop and it prevents the board from sliding out landing sideways.
The first thing you notice on the Malus domestica is its extreme bottom contour. But this is not where the board started. When designing a board, we first try and find the best combination of rocker, outline and rails. Only when we have this balance right we add stuff like crazy tails and bottoms to make the board better. And more exiting! The deep concaves on the rail give the board great stability when riding upwind. The bottom follows the deck contour, making the effective rail thinner and better through chops, without making the board itself too thin. The concaves cut the rocker in the middle of the bottom, this creates a super effective surface for the water to pass underneath. Making the board really fast and early planning. This is a super allround kiteboard!
The Malus Domestica comes with 5 fin boxes as standard, giving you the choice of riding quad or thruster.
White-line Boards have FUTURES fin boxes as standard. The two side fin boxes are in teal color.
The deck of the white-line boards are lined with the hex-skin single layer sandwich with an extra internal patch under the front foot. This construction has proven to be more than strong enough for almost all riders, especially with a deck pad. White-line is the best balance in flex, weight and durability for most riders.

WHITE LINE CONTRUCTION
50K CLOSED CELL FOAM
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.
The base of the white line board consists of three layers wrapped around the core. An internal structural fibreglass layer, a hex-skin flexible honeycomb layer and another structural fibreglass layer that is placed in a 45 degree orientation. This to keep the board as flexible as possible while making a very strong base. The bottom is left without honeycomb, again to maintain maximum flex.
STRENGTH OPTIONS WHITE LINE
This is the standard construction for kite wave surfing. Meaning true surfing with a kite. You can do the occasional freestyle jump, but in general these boards are made for the waves. The construction consists of the normal Kite+ construction, but without the internal 3mm honeycomb. Instead there is an extra biaxial fibreglass layer under the front foot. The construction is more than strong enough for everyday use, and you will not ding the board easily. After some time slight heel dents may appear, this is considered normal, and it will not weaken the board.
Optionally, you can order the White-line in full S glass. This higher quality glass is stronger and more flexible. Because of this, we can use less fibreglass and this makes the board about 15-20% lighter. The White-line S is for who want the lightest, most flexible construction.

*The actual weight will differ slightly per board and can be about 5% less or more.

My Appletree board was a game changer. I can’t believe it took me so long to ‘see the light’! I’d been trying to learn how to ride strapless on production kitesurf boards for more than a year and it was just not working out great. The boards were always too big and bulky and just felt a little off. A lot of kite brands don’t produce small boards, so I kept making do on whatever board I could get my hand on and assumed that’s what kitesurfing was.
After using their Board Finder tool and chatting with Wieger from Appletree, I got my very first Appletree Surfboard, a Malus Domestica. They were more than happy to take a custom order for a smaller size to make sure that I would get the most out of my board. It was worth the wait. During my first session on my new board, I felt like my riding level had doubled… like I’d unleashed my inner wave riding goddess! I wasn’t tripping over chop, sliding out on bottom turns, or losing control on the top turn anymore. Even switching feet, jibing, and tacking was immediately easier.
I’m on a board that I trust completely, both in shape and durability, and I finally feel like I’m making some serious progress with my strapless riding. I can’t wait for the next day of wind and waves to get out there and smack some lips!!
100% recommend Appletree, and definitely don’t hesitate to ask for advice to help find the perfect board for you. They’re a great group of people that want you to have the best strapless (or strapped) session possible!

I love this board and have progressed much quicker since I got it. I’ve been riding strapless surfboards for years in small sloppy surf and was very frustrated with my lack of progression. It’s good upwind, carves nicely is very light and very forgiving when carving and changing feet. Also great for pops and jumps. Im 78k and have the 5’2 which I thought might be too small but it’s perfect.
