Welcoming a King - Cabrinha Welcomes Lorenzo and Leonardo Casati

No doubt you either saw the whole thing, or saw highlights from one of the most epic Red Bull King of The Air competitions in kiteboarding’s history. An event that not only will go down for its epic conditions, it also marked a shift in the big air realm whereby all 3 finalists were teenagers. This changing of the guard was dominantly led by one person, who we are extremely proud of along with his brother to welcome to the Cabrinha Family. Welcome Lorenzo and Leonardo Casati.

Lorenzo needs no introduction, his win at the KOTA event showed the world where the Big Air direction is going and with Cabrinha he will continue to lead and dominate in that area and also target the Strapless World Title. He is extremely excited to finally be able to announce his start with Cabrinha.

“I talked with the Cabrinha team and shared with them the same enthusiasm and ideas about the future. Together we are going to be able to push the design of kites, boards and the sport to the next level”

Leonardo is the younger brother who is already dominating the youth competition scene on a global level. The current GKA Strapless Jr. Champion and the World Junior U14 Champion in freestyle and big air, he will be showcasing his skills in the surf and in the air.

The Casati’s join the rest of the Cabrinha International Big Air team of Stijn Mul, Camdyn Kellet, Cameron Westman and Hannah Whiteley, and they will be in Capetown, riding, shooting and competing over the next month. They will also be joined by Pat Goodman for an exclusive first showing of the all-new Kite that brought these riders to the brand and which will take them to the next level; The Nitro. The date of the public showing will be announced soon, so keep your eyes out.

Here is a comment from Pat about the Cabrinha Big Air Program:

“Seeing this new generation of riders bringing big air kitesurfing to a completely new level of extremity is so exciting! Unbelievable what they are achieving now! It is so great to be a part of it and see the sport go full circle and get back to the roots of why we were drawn into the sport in the first place. With a totally new line-up of talented and fearless big air team riders combined with the new Nitro Big Air kite, Cabrinha is ready to “redefine" big air kiteboarding once again!”

The Nitro is just one of the new kites coming from Cabrinha in the January 18th Launch, so get ready for the market to be shook up, and Cabrinha to be dominating the skies.

If the deal was signed a few weeks ago, what a great news for Cabrinha (and a bit of luck !).
I'm sure Lorenzo wouldn't have chosen a brand without knowing they could provide a kite that fit his style. So, I assume we can expect kites with new material from Cabrinha (Dynema type for the leading edge) which is a great news for the riders and customers.

Happy to read the news!

1. happy for the young hot shots, looking forward to more amazing tricks from them. And how cool the two brothers are pushing. We already had two amazing brothers pushing hard, Val and Sebastian Garat (KPWT world champ).

2. new big air kite. Loving big air since day 1, I never understood the sport going away from it and copying other sports. THIS is kiteboarding with its unique tricks. While it is great to have other disciplines as well, this should always have been #1. Hopefully also comes in bigger sizes...don't forget the older guys who don't want to loop the kite and go out in 40+ knots, but just want to fly and enjoy airtime ;-)

Bring it on guys!

I notice that Cabrinha have chosen to use the colours - black ..... and white.... for their big air kite. Wonder where they got the idea that black and white kites jump highest from? :lol:

I think this is visual affect that white always will look as higher than full black kite, even if black will be 2-3 meter higher :)
It is from human dnr nature and born perception from....white clouds in the sky :) Do you saw black/dark clouds high :)? Black clouds always looks low even if they are high :)

For me it's curious that Ocean Rodeo has just Giel in the Big Air team. Is it because is enough premium brand that they don't need more (young) talent?


Btw, I supose will be new material because in the webpage of Cabrinha says something about Moto X.

Black and white gets often used for prototype...let's see if this is the final coloring.
