Cabrinha meaning + other kitesurf brand names?

Postby Kiterpep » Wed Jun 24, 2020 11:49 am

Just heard from my roommate that Cabrinha is Portugese for little goat :lol:

Makes me wonder if there's hidden meanings behind other kite brand names. Does anyone know of any?

A friend of my sister-in-laws ex girlfriend thinks it might be named after some guy that nobody has ever heard of but who knows. Also there was a rumor going around that North was actually stolen from the compass directions company and they had to change it. Pretty mysterious shit for sure.

Ocean Rodeo is exactly what's it's like kiting on a REALLY nasty gusty - shifty day !
