COBRA International Launches New Composite Windsurfer LT

April 09 2018

To continue the celebration of its 40-year anniversary, COBRA International Co. Ltd. (COBRA) has formally launched the mass production of the new Windsurfer LT, which is an advanced composite windsurf board.

Prototypes were built at COBRA’s factory in Thailand and tested throughout 2017, with the team going through several design iterations before arriving at the perfect combination of board shape, rocker, underwater profile and weight. Inspiration was taken from classic boards of the past, but also referencing the latest processing ideas and the final board was created using a lightweight EPS core, glass combi fabrics and a bio based foaming epoxy via Cobra’s Advanced Surf Technology (AST) process. The resulting board is 6.5kg lighter than an equivalent design in traditional materials, and plans to evaluate a fully recycled EPS core option for the future are in progress.

The Windsurfer Class Association, who is also celebrating their own 50th anniversary this year, became involved with the project during the testing and evaluation phase and was so impressed that the Australian, Italian and Japanese fleets have voted to adopt the new boards as standard equipment. With several large windsurf industry brands also interested in the new board, COBRA’s standardized production lines and rigorous online quality control is perfectly placed to rapidly ramp up for high volume global supply.
