Re: 2018 - Cabrinha Kitesurfing

Debating on upgrading my 9 drifter to the new drifter. Cab driver, can you let me know what the advantages are with the 2018? The Drifter was launched in 2012 and has forever changed surfing with a kite. 2018 is the first all new Drifter since then. We have been very careful not to screw up the Dri...

Re: Black Marks Off Cabrinha Depower Line?

The black ink comes from the below the bar stopper / swivel. Constant contact and rubbing of this part with the lower part of the bar will release the ink and it will travel up through the de power line and into your hands. The will also make your bar look old and dirty very quickly!! I noticed this...

Re: 2018 - Cabrinha Kitesurfing

How much did they charge you for the bungie line? I had mine replaced by a shop; however, shop is out of business (also the first two lines were a few inches longer that the one on my 2016 bar). Anyone care to share part numbers and lengths for this part? I would like to order a spare until I decid...

Re: 2018 - Cabrinha Kitesurfing

Hello Cabdriver, do you know if they did change something to the bar pu-tube diameter so the landingline can't be stuck anymore like in the previous years models? According to Cabrinha there's no problem with this, the system worked fine... my line kept getting stuck because of user error and decli...

Re: Gear prices vs discounts vs free/sponsored gear

LOL nice try Switch gorilla marketing attempt No marketing attempt, I'm not even consistent with buying my gear from a single brand: I use Cabrinha kites because that's what I started with. My foil is a liquid force that I got cheap from someone that was selling it, and my my strapless board is fro...

Gear prices vs discounts vs free/sponsored gear

Hi all! I've been riding Cabrinha kites since I started kiting some 3 years ago, mostly because it's what I learnt on and the quality seems OK (apart from the minor quirks with their bars). Since stating, I've gotten 4 bars, and 5 kites. 1 kite from a school (almost new), 3 new at almost full price,...

Who has ridden the LF low aspect wings and switched to mid aspect wings?

Hi!! Basically, anyone here went from the foil fish/rocket foil to the happy foil, or changed the low aspect wings to the mid aspect wings? I'd like to know: - If they're much difficult to ride and gybe than the low aspect wings. - If they're much faster, as in a completely different league. - How's...

Re: Wil there be innovation in 2018??

+1 on hard harnesses and foils Was is 2015 or 2016 where the Cabrihna bars sunk in brackish/fresh water, and barely floated in saltwater? Pretty sure it's the first year they went to the adjustable ends. I believe it's the 2015, with the strap trim. The 2016 I can't comment since I only used those ...

Re: Wil there be innovation in 2018??

I hope some brands focus more on refining/fixing what they have instead on going for innovations that will not be convincing and/or will bring other issues. Cabrinha, hopefully can get out a bar that just works and doesn't have any recall (or a not recalled problem). F-One could probably add a worki...
