Cosmic Crafts Foil Boards

Cosmic Crafts Foil boards are shaped by local Lennox Head surfer, foiler and shaper Travis Bristow. Over the last 5 years Travis has honed his board crafting skills at Local Motion surfboards Ballina. 

I've been spending a lot of time researching, developing and testing the foil boards. It's something I totally enjoy.

I'm stoked to currently be one of the only shapers in the area offering customers the most innovative, progressive custom foil board designs available. I've really tweaked my designs lately to get the most out of them in terms of performance. The fundamentals of the designs are that the foilboard releases cleanly and quickly on liftoff and also when the board touches down during a turn, it must release cleanly and quickly to avoid wipeouts. Along with water displacement and aerodynamics, these ideas drive my design. Edge's for super fast liftoff and release, some spiral V for water displacement, and concave for speed. These design elements also work with air flow once up on the wing. The profile and rocker all need to be taken into consideration in and out of the water. I want the board to liftoff quickly and have minimal air drag once up. While carving at high speed and laying the board over hard and critically you want the rail out of the way. If the rail touches down i want quick release from the water surface. The design elements i have incorporated all assist these principal performance ideas. 

The laminating process is being carried out in the areas longest running, industry leading surfboard factory's right here on the Far North Coast. Renowned for building exquisite products for the likes of Local Motion, Gunther Rohn, Tim Patterson, Webster, JS, Rob Fenech Shapes, just to name a few. The board builders here have a rich knowledge of surfboard manufacturing. Between the crew they have over a centuries worth of knowledge. That has proved invaluable to me. 

Beneath my shapes I'm going 100% with Armstrong hydrofoils which I believe to be the best designed, strongest, most reliable and user friendly foils in the market. Personally I've really felt the difference between Armstrong and others. It's a very direct positive feel beneath your feet. With speed, manoeuvrability, control, pump and glide, all at the ready when you call on them. I really couldn't be happier with these hydrofoils. Armstrong hydrofoils will improve your riding regardless of you current ability.

Perfect first board

Travis worked closely with me to help make the perfect first foil board. The only info I provided was my height and weight, as well as a colour. Trav designed a very user friendly setup.
I’m ready to progress to a smaller board now and can’t wait to order one of the new bottom shapes.
