Advanced strapless kiteboard
If you are ready to step up your strapless kitesurfing game and, like Paulino, are driven and inspired by the power of nature, this advanced strapless kiteboard might just be your board!
The Applino is designed to match Paulino Pereira’s style of strapless kitesurfing as much as possible. Explosive and powerful, yet stylish and smooth. Best for kiting in the waves or performing strapless freestyle tricks in flat water. It’s Paulino’s go-to board, a reliable partner in all conditions. It’s the ultimate advanced allround strapless kiteboard.
For the V2 version we have worked extensively with Paulino to improve on an already amazing design. Perhaps the most distinctive feature of the Applino V2 is that it is so lively and snappy. Some riders may experience this as somewhat nervous, but for those who like a loose and snappy board, this is exactly what makes the Applino so popular!
For completely bespoke options on the Applino V2's please get in touch - these boards will be made on demand in the factory in Portugal and usually have a lead time of 7/8 weeks.

The first change we made is that we added a single centre channel on the bottom of the board, right between the feet. This increases the board upwind ability by reducing the rocker in the middle of the board. Making the board a bit more user friendly.
When carving, the board follows the rail line which still has quite a bit of rocker, to allow for tight turns in the pocket.
Double grab rails
Another unique feature is the double grab rail. The Applino V2 now has grab rails on both the deck AND the bottom of the board. This gives an even better grip when doing board-off freestyle tricks.
Outline and rocker
The rocker is moderate to high. With a single concave running into a V behind the front fins. All there to make the board loose and snappy while maintaining control.
The Applino V2 is thin throughout with a slightly wider outline compared to a more traditional Klokhouse Noseless. This makes the rail bite a bit more so you can really put pressure on the board when initiating a jump. The wider front gives you an easier landing area.
Kick in the tail
The added kick in the tail helps loosen up the board and it also helps when landing reverse.
The Applino V2 comes with a thruster fin setup.
We advise combining the Applino V2 with a Pivot style thruster fin. For a bit of extra playfulness, you can choose a smaller middle fin in your thruster.
What started in a shed on an apple tree farm in the Netherlands by two brothers has now become the leading brand for kite surf boards and foil boards. They have expanded and built a dedicated production facility in Portugal. Their secret is their proprietary 50k closed cell foam which they use in all their boards. This is light, flexible, durable and waterproof. Together with their hex skin glass or carbon finish, it makes for a bombproof board.
