Design details

The Cabrinha Drifter is back for 2016 with two new bridle tuning options. One tuning option optimises performance for offshore wind conditions, and the

other optimises performance for onshore winds. The 2016 Drifter is a high depower kite that allows you to drop in the wave, accelerate, then dump the power completely to snap or carve turns. The kite is specifically designed to give you power on demand… power is effortlessly delivered to get you to the wave and then can be immediately released for riding the wave.

This excellent surf performance has put the Drifter kite at the top of its class. Dominating the podium with 2x World Kitesurfing Wave Championship titles in both the men’s and women’s divisions, the Cabrinha Drifter delivers a perfect blend of the best elements of surfing and kitesurfing.
