The 2018 Cabrinha Drifter maintains its famed drift stability while offering an expanded range of use for a larger group of riders. With a newly refined profile alignment, lighter bar pressure wingtip setting and enhanced tuning options the 2018 Cabrinha Drifter will be the go to kite for those kitesurfing in waves and pushing the limits of surf freestyle.

The 2018 Cabrinha Drifter is an incredibly versatile kite that is hugely rewarding to fly in waves however this is not performance you need to be afraid of!

The Cabrinha Drifter uniquely combines stable drift, precise turning and instant power / depower to deliver a hugely confidence inspiring ride in even the most challenging of conditions. This makes it arguably the most forgiving kite on the market yet it still retains the instant power you need to ‘pop’ freestyle tricks or simply accelerate you out of trouble.

You have the ability to tune the Drifter not only for lighter bar pressure but also tailor the performance of two bridle tuning options optimising them for onshore and offshore wind conditions. The onshore setting optimises performance for surfing in side shore and onshore wind, providing the maximum amount of ‘drift’ as well as tighter turning.  While the offshore setting focuses the Drifter for surfing in side shore and offshore conditions by improving upwind ability allowing easier cutbacks.
What truly makes this kite stand out from the rest is has become known as ‘Slack Line Drift’; the Cabrinha Drifter’s exceptional ability to drift downwind and stay aloft even when the lines are slackened. But this kite is no slouch, the power is there when you want, it’s short power / depower travel allows you to drop in, accelerate, then dump the power completely – giving you the time and ability to focus on the wave, getting the most from your ride.

The Cabrinha Drifter is often over looked as a freeride kite but the 8m and smaller sizes are very stable and forgiving and give a reassuring feel in the gusty changeable winds of the UK.

Kite sizes available: 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13m
