Which Cabrinha 2016 kiteboard is right for me?
The Outline of the board dictates the type of riding a board is suitable for more than any other feature.
STRAIGHT SQUARE OUTLINE
Give good tracking thanks to their long effective edge, good water release and early planing. This type of outline works well in light wind boards when built wider as it maximizes planing surface in the smallest possible length. - STYLUS
Generate power and pop using the edge of the board rather than the power of the kite for inverted tricks. It also sits deeper in the water for a smooth, dry ride in choppy conditions. - CUSTOM, CBL, ACE
MID SQUARE OUTLINE
NARROWED TIP OUTLINE
Work better for a hard edge riding style and deliver power control for carving. - TRONIC
What size Cabrinha 2016 kite surfboard do I need?
Length is the first place to start when choosing a Cabrinha 2016 kite surfboard. A general rule for choosing a kite board is to ride a board which is approximately 2-3 inches smaller than your height.
Width of a kite surfboard helps determine the volume as well as how much curve the board’s outline will have. Wider boards generally have more curve (as well as more volume). Wider boards are lively under your feet, especially in lighter winds or smaller waves.
Volume is an important factor when choosing a Cabrinha 2016 surfboard. Volume is made up of a combination of length, width, and the board’s thickness. Volume is an important element, especially in lighter winds and smaller waves. However, when the wind is strong and the waves are bigger, too much volume will work against you.

What is the difference between GFN & RTM fins?
Cabrinha's glass filled nylon (GFN) fins offer a more affordable yet durable fin option. They have a slightly softer flex throughout the entire fin which translates into a dampened ride, especially in choppy waters.
|HEX CORE RTM FINS
Made with a hex core and glass, this fin has a stiffer base and a moderately soft tip. The hex core fin provides excellent drive.
