Cabrinha Relaunch Kitesurf Kite 2013

The Relaunch kite is a scaled version of our inflatable kite which is designed to teach a student how to operate a fully functioning 4 line IDS kite. As the name denotes, the Relauch will teach a rider the real world techniques of reverse launching an inflatable kite by pulling on the left or right leader lines. It will also teach a rider the important technique of operating an IDS security system. Since the Relaunch is designed to be used with a standard QuickLink IDS control system, the student will be familiar with all of the control and security features by the time they get on the water for their 1st lesson.

Cabrinha Chaos Kitesurf Kite 2013

The Chaos is Cabrinha's all new competition Freestyle kite. This kite is dedicated to one thing, delivering the absolute best performance in Freestyle competition. Designed with PKRA superstar Alby Rondina, this bridled C kite represents the progression taking place in today's touring freestyle arena. Lets be clear, this technical performance kite is not for everyone. It won't mow your lawn. It won't leave you dangling. But if you are looking to get on the podium then this is your kite.

Cabrinha Vector Kitesurf Kite 2013

The hybrid design is perfect for Universal Riding. That means its perfect for surf, freestyle, or wakestyle.

We've stripped down the non essentials, giving you the option to upgrade as you feel necessary.

Cabrinha Drifter Kitesurf Kite 2013

In 2012 the Drifter surf kite was a breakaway success. Surfers worldwide have now come to know the benefits of “drift stability”. Drift stability, one of the Drifter’s prominent features, is the kites ability to stay afloat and drift downwind when the kite is depowered. This so called slack line drift function allows the rider to power into the wave, then shut the kite power down and surf as if the kite was not even there. When the rider needs to power back up the kite is quick to re- engage and power the rider to the next section. The Drifter’s hybrid design is slightly more upright and compact in shape. This makes the Drifter turn on a dime, and power and depower on command.

Cabrinha Crossbow LW Kitesurf Kite 2013

The Crossbow, now in its 7th edition sits at the top of the list as being the most efficient kite in our range. Its improved light wind performance can be attributed in part to its new lighter weight design. We’ve reduced the number of struts and have distributed the Dacron sparingly and more efficiently. Thus earning its new designation as the Crossbow LW (Light Weight). The Crossbow’s bow kite design is another factor in providing a wide wind range and light wind performance. The bow kite design allows us to produce a high aspect kite with a flatter arc which delivers more power per square meter than a non bow kite.

Cabrinha Switchblade Kitesurf Kite 2013

There are very few cases in the world of kite design where high performance and ease of use collide. The Switchblade is just one of those rare cases. The Switchblade is the worlds premier wakestyle kite. Powering the likes of Andre Phillip to legendary status in his pursuit of core wakestyle riding. One of the elements that make this kite so perfect for wakestyle riding AND all round freestyle riding is its predictability. It has pitch perfect balance when riding unhooked and a light bar pressure when riding hooked in. The Switchblade has undergone a few strategic improvements in 2013 to enhance its efficiency and turning speed (especially in the larger sizes) without compromising the legendary “feel” that has made the Switchblade the world’s best selling kite model.
