  • Sometimes the littlest ideas can manifest into the biggest innovations. At Cabrinha we are all about little ideas and big innovations. Our product range has evolved year after year into a model of minimalist design. The innovations are so cleverly concealed inside ergonomic forms that youd have to look closely to identify the numerous features that are seamlessly baked in. We live and breathe the idea that only the absolute necessary features and components are incorporated onto our products. You wont find any extraneous clutter hanging from our gear and we steer clear of any gimmicks. At Cabrinha we strive to put the absolute best products in the hands of the rider no matter what their level is. From the touring pro to the first time rider, each Cabrinha customer gets our commitment that the product they are riding is made from the highest quality materials and construction techniques in the industry.

    We are purveyors of innovation and inspiration. Our products are designed to deliver an experience as much as they are designed for a specific use. Your relentless enthusiasm is oxygen for our motivation.

    Thanks for being part of the Cabrinha family. Well see you on the water.

    ideas & innovations

  • 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 worlds besT selling kiTe model.

    where high performanceand ease of use collide

  • drifterin 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 drifTers 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 drifTers hybrid design is slighTly more uprighT and compacT in shape. This makes The drifTer Turn on a dime, and power and depower on command. when The wind condiTions are marginal and you need To sTeer The kiTe a loT, The drifTer will surgically place The kiTe where you need iT exacTly when you need iT.

    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. weve 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 crossbows 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. This power is easily conTrolled by our Trademark depower on demand. This allows The rider To precisely conTrol The power of The kiTe. wheTher you are serious abouT racing or serious abouT having as much fun as possible in exTremely lighT winds, The crossbow lw delivers.
