    Life is all about

  • Its about linking with the type of people who share your vision, engage your thoughts, and walk your walk. Its about creating a network of friends. Its about shrinking the globe and spreading the kite surfing vibes face to face, hand to hand, person to person. As much noise as everyone makes about being connected today, its also just as important to disconnect. To step aside and get away from it all. To put into effect your get away plan. This balance of connecting and disconnecting is a big part of the kiteboarding experience. The ability to be with friends and yet be miles away from it all at the same time.



  • In 2012 we take the art of connection literally by bringing you the revolutionary Quick Link Control System with IDS. Quick Link is the most advanced control system on the market today. Providing you with the ability to quickly connect to your kite or disconnect at will if the situation requires it. This highly refined system is loaded with advanced features which are ingeniously designed into an ergonomic clutter free work of art. This unmatched control system puts the control of your kite right into your hands, and right into the 21st century.

    With style, form and ergonomics driving the development of our boards, kites and accessories in 2012 Cabrinha once again defines the sport of kiteboarding.


    marshall islandsis a Micronesian nation in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, Consisting of 29 atolls and 5 isolated islands. Home to the clearest water almost anywhere in the world, underwater visibility of over 200ft. Steady NE tradewinds create ideal conditions for kitesurfing and windsurfing on long righthand reef points.



  • initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next, to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again - to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.

  • CONTROL SYSTEM.Internal Swivel Manually unspin any twists in flying lines. The worlds first fully spinning center line landing system

    Spinning Leash Connection The leash can rotate freely around the harness loop

    Security Pin Easily removable for unhooked riding. The center location of the pin also serves to reduce foul hooking.

    Intelligent Depower System: QuickLink uses our proven IDS method of 3 Stage Security. A system which was first developed by Cabrinha and has become the industrys gold standard in security.

    Stage 1: Depower on Demand(push bar away)

    Stage 2: IDS Activation(Push Quick Link unit away)

    Stage 3: Disconnect from Kite

    Ergonomic DESIGN The EVA bar ends are shaped to create a smooth transition from the bar grip to the bar end. The bar ends have smooth curves and edges and the EVA is forgiving when coming into contact with the body. The EVA bar ends have been lowered and widened to accommodate the entire line set wound onto them.

    FloatING BAR ENDS The EVA bar ends are buoyant enough to float the entire control system with lines attached.

    Flex Grooves The tips have flex grooves which aid in the bending of the tips while winding your lines onto the bar, and also aid in steering impulse.

    Recoil A spring loaded function which always keeps the bungee trim adjusters contained and well within reach. Making it the cleanest trim adjustment system on the market. With Recoil there is never a loose adjustment tail as seen with most above or below the bar trim systems.

    WideR CENTER HOLE FITTINGSteering and sheeting is much smoother with the increase in the diameter of the center hole fitting. The hole is now 2mm wider in diameter and the radius surrounding the hole has been increased 10 degrees to allow for reduced friction when steering.

    Multibore Tubing Cabrinha was the first to introduce the multibore tubing to internalize the center mainline as well as the 500kg landing line. Internalizing both lines decreases the external clutter on the control system and the PU tubing serves as protection from the constant action of the bar against the lines.

    In the break away sector of Kite Surfing, there is one kite which hides its technology behind its simplicity. The Drifters minimal 3 strut design both hides and illuminates its brilliance. The three well placed struts keep the profile of the kite intact through constant angle of attack changes while reducing the weight. This light weight but durable kite is dedicated to surf, yet it shines as a freestyle kite for wakeskating, skimboarding or flat water freestyle. While surfing hooked or unhooked the Drifter makes the most of its excellent slack line drift ability. Slack line drift is the kites ability to stay aloft even when the lines are temporarily slackened by depowering. But the Drifters main beauty lies in its simplicity. Weve pushed the complicated technology into the background so that all you have to think about is how you are going to tear apart the next wave.

    In 2012 the Nomad kite gets further refined in the Freestyle department. Our goal was to take its landmark turning speeds and unhooked abilities one step further. The result is a highly tuned kite which keeps its forward flying speed up even when unhooked. You can count on a constant steady pull whether you are passing or just throwing a massive raley. When it comes to kite looping, the Nomad delivers by accelerating its power when flying through the radius of a kite loop. Big or small the Nomad completes the loop with plenty of time to climb to the zenith to cushion your landing. Its no wonder that the Nomad is the pros choice for world tour level Freestyle competition.

    New for 2012, improved channel depth by 2mm and raised fin plateau by 3mm. Modified center spine to the same height as the fin plateau for balanced rail presses and directing water away from the center resluting in softer landings.

    New for 2012, the Caliber range of boards is equipped with a quad concave channel that now runs the length of the board. The added shape to the center of the board helps tracking and reduces impact on landings.
