APPLEFLAP NOSELESS WHITE-LINE

The White-line boards are a selection of Appletree's best selling models and sizes. The Appleflap Noseless wave kiteboard is one of these best-selling models. White-line means a standard construction with no custom options and white in colour. You only have to choose the size, because Appletree have already carefully selected the rest. White-line boards are available for order right now, in stock, with quick delivery worldwide. Contact us for advice on the size if you're still unsure after reading on.

High waves, high wind, high control

The Appleflap Noseless is a modern approach to a more traditional wave kiteboard. Narrow tail with pinched rails for optimal control at high speeds and in bigger surf. With a decent amount of rocker so the board doesn’t nosedive when coming down a wave. A wave kiteboard designed for control when you need it most. If high wind and big waves is your playground, than the Appleflap Noseless is your perfect partner!

The advantages of having a noseless board are clear. It takes a bit of getting used to not seeing the pointy nose, but less weight, easy travel and a slightly looser feel make the noseless version a good option. The back 2/3 of the board are exactly the same as the normal Appleflap, including the rocker. We only added a slight flip in the stubby nose to prevent it from diving.

BOARD FEATURES

Appletree have flattened the rocker in the middle part for the board for better upwind capability and down the line speed. Single to double concave for control precision surfing. You will be amazed with how easy this board rides upwind, it is very easy to ride on the spot. Also when jumping, the narrow tail makes it a surprisingly stable platform to land on. Our team likes this board a lot for freestyle as well. Soo small and light, when the wind is strong, the control is very welcome during freestyle as well. You can really push hard on the tail, giving loads of pop and release.

The Appleflap noseless in meant to be ridden small and with power in the kite.  When in doubt about the size, contact for advice.

 

WHITE LINE CONSTRUCTION

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.

50K CLOSED CELL FOAM

Every board Appletree make starts with a foam core of their very own; 50K closed cell foam. This foam is formalised exclusively for Appletree and 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.

HEX-SKIN GLASS

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.

WHITE LINE STRENGTH

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.
