The board that always surfs, from the weakest days to overhead waves
An all-round fun shape with performance characteristics taken from longboards and mini Simmons’ models. It’s like this board generates it’s own speed. As soon as you get up, you go! So you can get your first turn in earlier. A very welcome thing to have in summer conditions where the waves are generally short lived. Surf this board small, but pay attention to the volume, of which you want lots!
The ultimate board for your average day
Our team rider Kasper loves this board in 5’6” in almost all conditions. The bigger sizes (6’0 and 6’2) have proven to be a perfect step down from a mini-mal or beginner shape for intermediates that are looking for the next step in their progression.
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. Any small crack or ding does not need immediate repair. Eventually a repair is advised, but you can first finish your well deserved session or trip!
50K foam is not easy to shape, all commercially available shaping machines will have great trouble shaping it and hand shaping is not possible. At Appletree surfboards we use our own shaping machines that we built and control ourselves. This way we can not only shape the foam, but we can also create channels and extreme contours, straight from the machine.
All our surfboards are laminated using our unique vacuum technology. After the core is shaped with our custom CNC and hand finished by our skilled craftsmen, it’s time for the lamination to give the board it’s final strength.
Surfboards can be finished in both glass fibre and carbon fibre, but both go through the same lamination. The laminate is applied to the blank dry, both the top and the bottom, additionally fin boxes and leash plugs are installed. Then the whole package goes into a vacuum bag and under pressure is injected with epoxy resin. This way the whole lamination is much tighter and requires almost no more work. This way of laminating results in the best fibre to epoxy ratio, leaving the boards both lighter and stronger. We are able to produce carbon boards at a weight under 2.5 kg while keeping them ultra strong. normal glass fibre boards finish under 3 kg depending on the volume.
