Allround kiteboard for freestyle and small waves
Don’t want to choose between waves and freestyle? Meet the Malus Domestica! Appletree’s allround kite surfboard for freestyle and kitesurfing small waves. It ‘eats’ anything you throw at it and rides upwind like no other. The Malus Domestica is the product of a long search for the perfect crossover directional kiteboard for those who ride freestyle, but also can’t resist smashing a wave from time-to-time. The Malus will make sure you get a shot at both, which means you can relish your time on the water even more.
Easy rides in choppy conditions
Never let choppy and messy conditions ruin your fun, but go out and enjoy it! The unique triple concave on the bottom of the Malus Domestica makes the board very stable upwind and through chop. The wider tail template and parallel rails make It very easy to ride. It will make kitesurfing in choppy and messy conditions smooth and fun.
Be ready to add some awesomeness to your freestyle repertoire, because that comes naturally with the Malus Domestica. The triple concave prevents the board from sliding out landing sideways. And the wider platform is stable to stick the hardest freestyle tricks and landings.
Key board features
The extreme bottom contour gives the Malus Domestica quite an appearance. But this is not where the board started. When designing a board, we first try to 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 exciting!
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 planing. Make sure to move your feet to the front when riding upwind and to the back when initiating a turn.
5 fin boxes
The Malus Domestica comes with 5 fin boxes as standard, giving you the choice of riding quad or thruster.
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.
