Cabrinha was founded in 2000 by water Renaissance man Pete Cabrinha. With international titles in surfing and windsurfing, the transition to kiteboarding was a rather natural one. Pete Cabrinha entered the industry by designing his own kiteboards, which he eventually scaled and brought together under the newly created Cabrinha brand. Cabrinha Kitesurfing is now a subsidiary under the Neil Pryde group, which has helped create economies of scale and matching distribution models. As it is found now, Cabrinha Kitesurfing is the leading kiteboarding brand globally, distributing to 30 countries worldwide.
2013 has seen Cabrinha significantly up the ante when it comes to kiteboard deliverables. With the purchase of a new factory for the exclusive production of kiteboards, Cabrinha has been able to better standardize their kiteboard production techniques, as well as more rigorously monitor their supply chain to make sure Cabrinha products are constructed from the highest quality materials. The Co-Ax straps have been replaced with the Cabrinha Hydra straps, aligning themselves with current industry strap design to offer easier adjustment. These advancements only enhance Cabrinha’s already-strong kiteboard lineup, catering to the newest of kiteboarders to the very advanced. Cabrinha’s offerings include.
The XCaliber is Cabrinha’s deluxe freeride/freestyle kiteboard.
The Cabrinha Tronic is intended to be an all-around kiteboard, an appropriate fit for the kitesurfer who dabbles in a little of everything.
The Spectrum is Cabrinha’s most accessible freeride kiteboard, and will especially appeal to newer kiteboarders with its slight bottom concave, large surface area for early planning, and moderate flex for a softer riding experience.
Inspired by Susi Mai, the Cabrinha XO is specifically for female kitesurfers, a freeride/freestyle kiteboard with narrower stance and lighter build.
Cabrinha created the Stylus as a combatant to those light wind days, the perfect supplementary kiteboard when your smaller twin-tip just won’t do.
The Cabrinha Custom is a tour-de-force, delivering unparalleled performance in the freestyle and wakestyle disciplines.
