Appletree welcomes the Casati brothers!


We are thrilled to welcome Lorenzo Casati and his brother Leonardo to the Appletree team!

Dedicated to support their mission

The Casati’s are going all in to win the game. Unhindered by sponsor contracts and politics, they not only set out to find the best kite equipment on the planet, they were looking for true support for their plans. Meaning: direct contact with engineers that really listen to their feedback, dedication to support on their mission, and a team that not only feels like family, but also has their back.

Italy meets the Netherlands

They found their answers in the Netherlands, where three independent companies have been pushing, pioneering and focussing on what they do best: making high performance kites (Harlem), twin-tips (Lieuwe) and surfboards (Appletree). 

“When I tried the gear, I knew that this would be the way to go and after feeling the support of the team I was sold. I’m more than ready to make the impossible possible with my new family”, shared Lorenzo Casati. 

Bring it on!

Powered with the latest high-performance innovations from the three brands, Lorenzo is ready to reclaim the crown at the biggest Big Air battle of the year, Red Bull King of the Air 2023, followed by a busy schedule of podium quests around the world in both the Big Air twintip and strapless wave and freestyle disciplines.
