I had a chance to see and hold the new Cabrinha foils last week. They looks pretty, wings look solid and are nicely swept back which should help collecting less seaweed. Wing covers are short of being made of protected species' leather - they are very pretty and luxury covers. I think the fuselage is way overbuffed and could have been thinner but it does look like a nice job following the leaders on the market.

Foiling community would certainly appreciate faster way of clicking in/out the mast-board attachment and hopefully a nice open standard will come one day as well.

To the video itself - it's nice and clean and I'm glad Cabrinha brought the nice product out but I'd be wary of anyone who can't assemble foil by mere intuition :)

Why use a 25mm AND a 27mm bolt for the front wing? Was it that big of a design compromise to make them both 25mm or both 27mm?

At least all the bolts use the same hex key size.

It looks pretty good to me....the wings resemble a Levitaz at a 10th of the price....and probably stiffer....

I think it goes a long way to saying how some companies can over think basic stuff.
I didn’t know you could get 27mm long screws.
Or is it a way of ensuring you buy them as a spare part.
And personally I think the skeletonising of the mount plate puts a lot of faith in the long term durability of the Alloy.
