Mini Foil Kiteboard

Full carbon kite foil board

The Mini Foil is our small and ultra light full carbon kite foil board. If you like cruising around and having the most fun on light wind days, this could be your board. All our foil boards are made of full carbon. There is no glass fibre hidden underneath the carbon fibre. Carving, pumping, looping or sitting down, this board can handle it.

Easy to control

We made this kite foil board super light and stiff, to give the best response. You can really feel the foils every move and control accordingly. Our experience in building the lightest and strongest carbon kiteboards to now also build the lightest and strongest carbon foil boards possible. In the standard configuration the 4’2 board is only 2.2KG’s. But the smaller ones are even lighter. And all of this in a matte black stealth carbon finish as standard. Or customise the board to your needs.

Board features

The Mini Foil connects to your foil using two Futures US box tracks, which are positioned 90mm apart in the most common configuration to accept most foils in the market. This connection system is the strongest and lightest system available. The tracks are solidly mounted in a plate of extremely hard PET honeycomb with internal carbon to add even more strength. Wether it is carving, pumping, looping or sitting down, the boxes do not fail.

The Mini Foil is available as an ultra light version without inserts and as a slightly heavier version with foot strap inserts in a straight line and in a Y configuration.

FOIL CONSTRUCTION

 

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.

    Next level boards! I have a 5’5″ Applino Carbon and 3’6″ mini foil kiteboards.

    The Applino is a beauty – Feather light, carbon construction and eye-catching custom art. Amazing all around performance strapless kiteboard that does it all. Immediately advances your strapless freestyle game since it loves to be in the air (light weight, great pop plus handy grab rails). Also turns on a dime and rips in waves. Even decent upwind drive. Literally nothing bad to say about this gem! It’s the first carbon board I’ve owned and I am realizing it is way more durable than the usual glass. It’s built to take a beating on landings and has none of the usual everyday dings of glass. I’m 6’0″ and 185lb. I was debating 5’5″ or 5’7″ but glad I went smaller for the freestyle benefit of a smaller board to throw around. I don’t feel I sacrificed upwind drive etc.

    The kite mini foil is also all carbon with sick custom art. I asked the company to let their board artists do their thing and surprise me and I love it! Definitely attracts attention at the beach. And gets even more attention when someone lifts it up to feel how light it is! I went small with the 3’6″ and between the small size and the rigid carbon construction you get an amazing direct feel of the foil.

    Appletree had great customer service especially when seeking advice on the right board for me. And I loved their online board finder to help narrow board options down for me.

    If you’re looking for a high quality board, Appletree is the brand you’re looking for.

    I have the Klokhouse noseless 5”0 now for a longer period. Sticks on the water when you need it, riding 3m waves easy on it, on the drop in is has enough grip on the tail, it manages easy high speeds. Small waves I destroy with big spray. When you want to get air, kick it on the tail and it let go from the water. Hydrofoiling I’m doing on the pocketfoil 3”6 and I love it.

    This brand knows how to make boards!
