Appletree Malus Domestica Features
The first thing you notice on the Appletree Malus Domestica is its extreme bottom contour. But this is not where the board started. When designing a board, we first try and 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 exiting! 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 planning. This is a super allround kiteboard! The Appletree Malus Domestica comes with 5 fin boxes as standard, giving you the choice of riding quad or thruster.
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 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.
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.
STRENGTH OPTIONS WHITE LINE
Optionally, you can order the White-line in full S glass. This higher quality glass is stronger and more flexible. Because of this, we can use less fibreglass and this makes the board about 15-20% lighter. The White-line S is for who want the lightest, most flexible construction.
