2018 Cabrinha Stylus Kiteboard
The newly designed 2018 Cabrinha Stylus is just the tool you need to combat the light winds. The Stylus features an incredibly efficient outline and rocker, as well as a stiff flex to keep the big deck nice and lively. Eliminating the ankle-tightness often found with wider boards, the inserts have been moved toward the heelside edge. All of Cabrinha's 2018 boards feature ABS rails to keep the board water-tight, even after years of use and abuse.
What Cabrinha has to say about the 2018 Stylus
The Stylus is our light wind board. A flat rocker line and extra wide outline make the most of the conditions, getting you up on a plane with the least amount of power possible. Its dynamic single concave bottom shape with rail flats is the ultimate in low drag design, delivering the best light wind performance. Smaller fins minimize drag and enhance the fun you’ll have on this board.
- Excellent performance in light wind conditions
- Extra wide outline for early planing
- Versatility beneath your feet
- Excellent upwind ability
- Off-set binding inserts to the heel edge
Gets you up on a plane with the least amount of power possible. Found on the Stylus.
Stiff Flex Pattern
For those who ride fast and want the board to react quickly. A stiff flex pattern ensures a powerful energy transfer so the board will pop off the water, and maintain control at fast speeds. Found on the Ace Carbon, Xcal Carbon, CBL and Stylus.
Paulownia Wood Core
We use a premium “A-grade” Paulownia wood core which is vertically laminated to optimize strength, reduce weight and allow the board to flex more naturally and freely. Found in all 2018 models.
Basalt is a volcanic mineral fiber which offers vibration resistance and durability while maintaining a high strength to weight ratio. Washed pure molten basalt rock is absent of toxic additives. The combination of wood core with basalt laminate provides a flex characteristic, unique to Cabrinha.
Customized double 45 degree bias Carbon Fiber is a lightweight and durable laminate that maximizes performance by stiffening the flex pattern for increased response and explosive pop.
Core profiling is the most efficient way to control tip, tail and torsional flex. Tapered raised rails control the torsional stiffness and enhances flex control while keeping the board weight to a minimum. Freeride boards benefit the most from the technology with a substantial increase in rebound.
ABS is a tough hard wearing composite material which bonds very well to epoxy. This is used during the lay-up process ensuring a smooth, durable and consistent ride. All twin tip rails and insert blocks are made from ABS material.

It sits on a super cushy footpad with arch support, toe grips, and generous heel coverage.
Designed for the unique requirements of kiting, this boot offers the most solid connection between riders and their boards. The ultra-lightweight outer shell and low profile upper section are designed for more lateral movement, without sacrificing support. Other features include easy Velcro entry & exit, neoprene flex zones for flexibility, closed-toe design to reduce cramping and improve fit, and lightweight nylon baseless chassis to give you a solid board feel with maximum impact absorption
