Allround kiteboard for waves and freestyle
Meet the Malus Domestica! Appletree’s allround kiteboard for freestyle and 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 a lot, but sometimes find a wave to smash. The wider platform is stable to stick the hardest freestyle tricks and landings.
Navigate smoothly through the chop
The bottom features a unique triple concave, this makes the board very stable upwind and through chop and it prevents the board from sliding out landing sideways. The wider tail template and parallel rails make it very easy to ride. It has a lot of direct response and it goes upwind like no other.
The first thing you notice on the 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.
The Malus Domestica comes with 5 fin boxes as standard, giving you the choice of riding quad or thruster. Both the Hex-skin Glass as well as the Hex-skin Carbon versions are extremely strong. The Carbon version is quite a bit lighter and carbon naturally has a quicker response and better pop of the waters surface. The Glass version is heavier, still very strong and with a softer more comfortable flex to dampen chop. This board comes in the Hex-skin Kite+ construction as standard in both carbon and glass. An even stronger version can also be ordered, but that is only recommended for very heavy footed riders.
