  • Our 2017 twin tip line up features 6 unique outline shapes, each with it’s own specific flex pattern, and rocker line, to allow us to cover the wide range of styles and conditions, and produce unique characteristics for each board.

  • The Chaos is a high aspect C-shape kite designed to win freestyle competitions. Proving its capabilities, it carried Liam Whaley to the top of the 2016 Freestyle World Tour Championship ladder. This kite gives you the pop and line slack you need to make unhooked tricks effortlessly. Its advantage over its rivals is its wide wind range. Extended suspension lines or C-port lines add support to the leading edge to maintain arc shape and add flight stability. This ensures torsional freedom and movement to the kite for a stable and supported ride. It is tuned for freestyle moves and flies through turns, rather than pivoting through the wing tips, so you can throw a kite loop with the tightest arc possible. Its bar pressure stays light but delivers the right amount of feedback to let you know where the kite is at all times. Customizable steering options offer either quicker turns, or a more stable kite position for handle passes.

  • The Contra is a three strut light wind kite, designed to optimize low-end power while retaining the finesse that keeps this kite fun to fly. The high aspect ratio maximizes power production and makes generating power and speed a snap. Our trademark depower-on-demand makes managing this power effortless, allowing it to execute sharp and precise turns. Tuned to deliver the type of performance that will widen the scope of what you can do in light winds, the Contra has the power to get you up and riding when the winds are barely showing signs on the water. For 2017 we added pure profile panels to and brought the struts closer to the center to increase canopy support.

  • At Cabrinha we are all about innovations that matter. Some of the most important examples of our recent innovations can be seen throughout our Control System range.

    In 2017 we have all of your needs covered with Connection, bar and trim options to cover every style of riding.

    This year we offer two connection method options. The all new, purpose built Fireball, and the traditional hook and loop Quickloop. Both methods meet our stringent quality standards that you’ve come to expect. Each one is built for specific functions, the utmost being whether you ride hooked in or predominantly unhooked.

  • Purpose built for kite surfing, the Drifter is known for its drift stability, precise turning, and instant power and depower. Dominating the podium with multiple World Tour Kitesurfing Wave Championship titles in both the men’s and women's divisions, it delivers a perfect blend of the best elements for riding waves. Three well-placed struts keep the profile of the kite upright and compact, so you can turn on a dime and power and depower on command. Two bridle tuning options optimize performance for offshore wind conditions or onshore winds. Its standout characteristic, coined “Slack Line Drift”, defines its exceptional ability to drift downwind and stay aloft when the lines are slackened. The Drifter’s ability to get you up and going with a short depower travel allows you to drop in, accelerate, then dump the power completely to snap or carve turns. These characteristics combined that have put this kite at the top of its class for six years running.

  • Exploding on to the scene in 2016 the FX catapulted to the top of the freestyle crossover market. The highly responsive platform gives you power for explosive pop, and the perfect amount of boost for huge lofty airs. The modified C shape arc allows you to throw aggressive kiteloops, with the ability for the kite to hit the apex before transitioning into a soft landing. The pulley-less bridle is short and tight, increasing reactivity and user feedback. Its lightning fast turning speed, direct steering, and quick relaunch make it perfect for intermediate to highly advanced riders. The FX kite effortlessly bridges the gap between freestyle and freeride to create the perfect crossover kite.

  • The 2017 Cabrinha kite line up features 7 different models that cover the extremely wide range of riding styles and conditions that kiteboarding demands. Each kite is designed to produce its own unique characteristics from entry level to full blown competition.

  • The Radar is a fun and lively three strut kite, combining sophisticated performance with unadulterated simplicity. Its blend of function and versatility make this kite perfect for just about any riding style. The high sweep and low aspect ratio make the kite ultra-responsive and great for downloops. It provides immediate response with just about any input given to the control system. A simple bridle and thinned profiles keep the power in check, while still providing all the power you’ll want or need. It has a well-balanced, full body, and swept wings which make the kite shockingly easy to relaunch. The generously curved leading edge makes the kite roll into the relaunch position with very little input from the rider. The Radar excels as a crossover kite, making progress easy, whether you’re into freeride, freestyle, or powered up surf.

  • Kitesurfing has leapt into a new era of performance surfing and it’s clear that kitesurfing will never be the same. Kitesurfing draws its inspiration from the very core of surfing and it’s sometimes difficult to see where surfing leaves off and kitesurfing begins.

  • The Switchblade is back, with over 12 years of design and composition refinements. Evolving into an icon, the Switchblade sits at the heart of our kite range where style and performance are seamlessly interwoven. Loved by many for its unique combination of smooth power delivery, unrivaled predictability and uncompromising high end performance, the Switchblade has redefined the notion of what a single kite can achieve. The five strut design has distinct segments that hold the canopy true to its intended shape, increasing the kite’s performance regardless of the wind conditions or angle of attack. The wide ranges of attack angles give the SB the incredibly powerful, predictable pull it is famous for. Unmatched in its power, performance and craftsmanship, the SB unapologetically creates the ultimate kiting experience.

  • Fireball is the first kite connection system purpose built for kitesurfing from the ground up. Its unique design harnesses the specific forces and movements of kiteboarding, and combines them with ergonomic form factors to create a kite connection which seamlessly translates your body movements into an immediate kite reaction. It instantly upgrades any kite and harness delivering more control, security, and comfort than ever before.
    The ball and socket interface is a semi-circular fitting that brings the pivot point of the connection closer to your core. This keeps the spreader bar from rotating into your body when the pull of the kite comes from overhead. The socket is much closer than a traditional hook, thus reducing the rotational torque into your body by up to 50%.
    The rotational axis also allows freedom for the kite to follow its natural path in the sky independent of your body position. The friction-free connection maintains a fluid and secure mobility, making your harness feel more comfortable. With the Fireball system you can easily connect from any angle and will never be able to foul-hook.
    One of the most unique things about Fireball is its locking gate. The locking gate is positioned on the spreader bar so it can be locked and unlocked on the fly. The secure gate design automatically seats itself into position and provides a friction free method to keep Fireball engaged into the socket.
    From the first time you lay your eyes on Fireball you see that this is something entirely different. This sleek new approach to one of the most important points in kitesurfing, the point where the power of the kite meets the power of your body, closes the loop (pun intended) on our efforts to maintain control over the most important elements of a kite control system.
    In 2017 we will offer two connection method options. The all new, purpose built Fireball, and the traditional hook and loop Quickloop. Each is built for specific functions, the utmost being whether you ride hooked in or predominantly unhooked.

  • Naturally driven to shake things up, innovation is in our DNA and the 2017 season does not disappoint.

    The new line-up features Quad-Tex, the strongest canopy material ever made; function-rich Torque Control Systems; uber-intuitive kites; performance-enhanced boards and bindings so comfortable you’ll forget you’re wearing them.

    We’re always asking “how high, how fast, how far . . .” and we feed that insatiable curiosity by pushing the boundaries. 2017 marks the next era in kiting. Are you ready to get on board?
