The new Pro foil V2 is here from Appletree Surfboards!
The world’s best allround surf foil board just got better!
The original Pro-Foil is a proven favourite with foilers all over the world and the sport is growing quickly. As surf foiling is developing, our design has too, and it’s now time for the V2 version of the Pro-Foil.
The Pro-Foil V2 is the ultimate allround surf foil board. From paddling in steeper waves to tow-in sessions, as well as small mushy surf to wake foiling. The original Pro-Foil was the first boat hull bottom foil board that set it apart from the rest with super-efficient paddling and the best release from the water upon takeoff.
The deep V bottom helps with touchdowns and whitewater bashing. V2 has been refined even more with a slightly elongated middle section in the bottom and a redesigned tail for an even better release. The rails are also thinned out a bit, which make them easier to hold on to at take-off and while duck diving.
Negative Angle, Positive Feeling!
The biggest innovation for the Pro-Foil is the new recessed deck with a slight negative angle of attack. We know this sounds strange, but hear us out!
Firstly, the recessed deck is amazing for paddling as it ‘hugs’ your chest, allowing more control and power in your paddle. Once you have tried it, you will never go back to flat decks.
The main benefit of the recess is we can now play with the attack angles of the board. A board with a bit of rocker in the bottom helps for better touchdown performance and easier takeoffs as it deflects the water down your board, and the rider upwards. This is the way you want to go, but the negative impact is your standing area on the deck will have an upward angle. This increases back foot pressure and is not good for foil control and makes pumping the board much harder.
With the recessed deck we can increase the bottom rocker while keeping the standing area at 90 degrees to the foil tracks, but the fun doesn’t stop there… We can now also tune the angle of attack, and after numerous experiments, we have found that a slight negative angle vastly improves both the pump and the ride feel on a wave.
The Pro-Foil V2 has a -0.3 degree negative angle between the standing area and the foil mast.
Dings don’t have to be fixed right away
Our trusted Appletree technology is at the core of the new Pro-Foil. Our high density 100% waterproof foam, combined with a PET honeycomb double carbon fused foil box means that it will never fail. Appletree’s foil boards are by far the strongest in the market. A sustainable board that you can rely on for many sessions over many years.
Key Design Features
Boat Hull V Bottom
A classic on its own, the boat hull V bottom gives you maximum tracking and stability when paddling. It naturally releases without that sticking feeling of deep concaves.
More comfortable to paddle. More control over the foil.
-0.3 Degree Negative Angle
Gives a more natural feeling when surfing down the wave. Increases pump while decreasing back leg fatigue.
Stock Or Custom
You can order the Pro-Foil as our standard stock model, or customise your ride. Stock boards are black clear carbon fibre and have no inserts.
Customisations include colour choice or adding inserts for foot straps if needed.
This allround surf foil board is super light and stiff to give the best response. You can really feel the foil’s every move and can control it accordingly. We used our experience in building the lightest and strongest carbon kiteboards to now also build the lightest and strongest foil board possible.
Futures US boxes
Two Futures US boxes connect the foil to your carbon paddle foil board. The boxes are positioned in the most common configuration at 90mm to accept most foils on the market. This connection system is the strongest and lightest available. The boxes are set in a high-density PET honeycomb, that in turn is sandwiched in carbon meaning carbon fibre is also used inside the board. This makes the foil connection ultra-strong, and really stiff for the perfect energy transfer from board to foil.
