Cabrinha Drifter Kitesurfing Kite 2015
The Cabrinha Drifter surf kite is a kite with a purpose. This kite is dead set on being there for you when you need it and getting out of the way when you don’t.
Sizes: 5.5m, 7m, 8m, 9m, 11m, 13m
You see, kite surfing is an act of taking power from the kite when you need it and dumping the power altogether when you don’t. This high depower kite allows the rider to drop in, accelerate, then dump the power completely to snap or carve their turns. It delivers a perfect blend of the best elements of surfing and kitesurfing. The Drifter’s special design allows it to drift downwind and stay aloft even when the lines are slackened. This phenomenon, first developed by Cabrinha is known as drift stability.
Specially designed to be the absolute best kite for surfing and surf freestyle.

SPRINT Airlock Valve
Single point rapid inflation of the kite. The large one-way Airlock valve quickly feeds air into all of the struts from a single location. Directly connects to the hose, no adapter needed. Once inflated you can lock off each strut independently.
Kites are carefully constructed by hand using the most cutting edge technologies and materials available today. The secret to our ultra durable construction lies in the experience gained building the world’s best kites for over a decade.
A dynamic arc allows the kite to have two distinct arc shapes. Tighter arc in flight for faster turning. Opens wide on the water for faster relaunch.
Power Control Pigtails
Quickly adjust the power level of the kite. Each rear line “pig tail” connector has three power positions which you can connect to. The middle position is the factory recommended position. Create more power by connecting the knot closest to the kite or less power by connecting to the knot closest to the rider.
All Cabrinha kites are designed and built on a Skeletal Frame foundation. Skeletal frame technology allows us to make a lighter more durable kite by strategically placing the reinforcement weight materials into a framework that surrounds the lighter weight canopy materials.
