Appleslice Wing board
Light, responsive, compact, fast. That pretty much sums up the Appleslice Wing foil board!
Wing surfing, or wing foiling, has taken a huge leap lately. And so has the understanding of what equipment is best to ride. We have made plenty prototypes of this wing foil board to find a shape that works for most riders in most conditions. We have made 5 sizes to accommodate beginner to advanced.
Real experienced riders might find it possible to get started on a super low volume board. But most riders will want a board with a volume in Liters around their body weight in KG. Better riders can go slightly under their weight and beginners a bit over. Also for easy cruising in light winds and on flat water a bigger size is much easier to handle.
The shape of the Appleslice Wing is compact and fairly thick. This is to get as many liters as possible in the compact shape. This compact outline and short length is really important for wing foiling. Imagine a big board balancing on a small foil mast. This is a huge swing weight, that slows all movement down and makes quick turns impossible. For learning this can be an advantage as it is more stable, but the learning curve in wing foiling is pretty quick, so you will not enjoy a big shape for long.
The bottom of the Appleslice Wing features a 4 way “boat hull” in the front. This splits the water and makes it possible to accelerate quickly. The middle part has a 3 stage with a flatter part in the middle. This provides a quick planing surface, but it is small enough that it will not stick to the water’s surface when releasing and rising on the foil. Behind the foil box, there is an aggressive kick that further helps with release.
The deck is concave, to lock your knees in when you get going. It also gives a real secure platform to stand on. The Appleslice Wing has inserts for foot straps as standard and comes with a comfy 3mm EVA traction on the whole deck. The board is more than strong enough to do crazy airs and jumps. Which makes wing surfing so fun!
The Appleslice Wing comes with:
- Full EVA deck pad
- Futures US boxes
- A matte finish, in white with the carbon shining through
