Cabrinha kiteboarding has been around for over 20 years and has its origins in Hawaii, from the village of Haiku Cannery on the island of Maui.
Maui is a small island located in the Pacific Ocean where Pete Cabrinha, the founder of Cabrinha kites together with Robby Naish, Dan Bolfing and Lou Wainman started kite surfing on Kitebeach. First with kites that couldn't float yet, later with 2 lines of tube-kites and finally the kites as we know them now.
This development did not come by itself. At the time, sugar cane was Maui's largest export product, but innovation in surfing and windsurfing was the island's main source of income at the time. Innovation by these local surfing and windsurfing enthusiasts in the field of kitesurfing was therefore actually indispensable in these circumstances.
Cabrinha Kites and kiteboards
The past 20 years have been an incredible time for Cabrinha and kitesurfing. Every year new goals were achieved in the field of product development and safety. Cabrinha has been one of the largest kitesurfing brands in the world for years.
Cabrinha kites are characterised among other things by their excellent robustness and durability combined with very versatile kites. On Maui the wind is often extremely gusty and hard, which makes this an indispensable factor. This is reflected in the stability and the enormous range of application. The Cabrinha Switchblade is the best known kite in the series and guarantees amazing flying characteristics, very good up-wind performance and the widest wind range. Few freeride kites can match the Cabrinha Switchblade in this respect. The Cabrinha FX combines this with good freestyle performance under almost all conditions. With the Cabrinha Moto you go for an even more stable kite, ideal for mastering the sport safely and quickly right up to the first jumps.
The Cabrinha Overdrive kitebar is a beautifully finished, clean and solid bar. This kitebar is one of the safest on the market.
