Apple Skipper wing: high performance wing foil board

Experience the high performance Apple Skipper Wing foil board: slimmer, stiffer and highly fine-tuned.

As wing foiling swiftly advances, particularly in wave riding, it’s crucial for your gear to keep up. Understanding that advanced riders are eager for cutting edge performance, we’ve designed the Apple Skipper wing to deliver just that. 

Skipper concept

The Skipper wing is part of the Skipper concept of boards. 4 boards with the same design language, but tuned for the specific needs of each discipline. 

The Skipper concept revolves around a new hull concept. The boards are thin throughout, giving a connected feel to the foil. Under the front foot, the bottom features a unique “bulge” that actually sits slightly lower than the foil box.

This bulge displaces water upon touchdown and it makes the board “skip” back up. Ideal for foam bashes and more radical wing foiling in the surf. 

Tight turns in the pocket

The outline of the board is narrower and longer than the Jazz and the Slice V2. This makes the board still relatively easy to ride and the narrow tail especially makes it perfect for tight turns in the pocket and harder carves. Without the risk of the rail touching the water and slowing you down. 

The bottom is fairly rounded and lacks a flat section. This makes the board harder to get to planing speed, but on the upside it releases better. The Skipper-wing is definitely not a beginner shape. It has been designed with the needs of experienced riders in mind.

Smooth transition

The teardrop shape, especially in the tail, makes the board release so well on touchdown and when you start to go on to foil, that you hardly notice the transition. 

There is also more rocker in the boards bottom, while keeping the deck as flat as possible. This helps sticking landings and it forces the board up when starting up.

Universal Foil tracks

The foil boxes are placed slightly forward and they feature the all new Appletree long boxes for more foil placement flexibility.

The angle between the foil boxes and the deck/standing area is 0 degrees, meaning that the mast will sit at 90 degrees. This angle, combined with the long tracks make the board compatible with all foils on the market. There is no longer a need to move foil boxes to match certain foils. 

Crossover board

The lineup in the Skipper wing is compact throughout. Starting at a 4’8” in 45L This is one step up from the Skipper-prone series, so the Wing range basically picks up where the prone version ends.

The bigger prone sizes and the smaller wing sizes of the Skipper make great crossover boards that you can use for both wing and prone surf foil. 

Lighter and advanced riders

Ideal for lighter and advanced riders. Sizes up do not go up much in length, but more in thickness to gain volume. Stock sizes are 4’8 to 5’2 and 45L to 75L. The maximum size is 75L as the board is purely designed as a sinker style board.

If you are looking for a board that floats your weight, the Jazz and the Slice V2 are better options.
