NathanP-sq-250The week leading up to the first major storm of winter saw great anticipation of amazing conditions from those of us that favor the strongest winds with the largest waves. Tucker and I were on it – monitoring the weather throughout the week and especially the day before. We made the call the night before, planning on riding right when everything would be at its peak. The forecast called for gale force winds with 20′ significant wave heights – prime.

On Friday, I was woken up by my house shaking from the winds. Given the 20-degree temps outside and knowing the water would be in the sub-50 range, I began to shy away from the idea of heading out on such a nasty day. We made a call around noon to back off on riding, only to make a go of it around 4. Tucker and I headed for the beach with a 2013 Switchblade 7 and a 2012 Nomad 7, expecting winds in the mid-30kt range. We were very wrong.

2013 Cabrinha Kite Lineup:

Cabrinha’s 2013 lineup is better than ever.  We have listened to your constructive comments and have built our 2013 range of products to be the absolute maximum in performance, security, and value.

2013 Cabrinha Switchblade:
We have an all-new Switchblade.  YES – it turns faster, is much lighter in the bar, and jumps off the water or snow during relaunch.  The Switchblade will continue to be the industry benchmark for parked kite performance and amazing stability, but the handling is vastly improved with new canopy shaping for a faster turning lighter bar that translates into top performance in Freeride, onshore surf, and basic freestyle!!

2013 Cabrinha Siren Collection Switchblade:
We also now offer the Siren Collection within the Switchblade specifically tailored to the ladies.  Everything from the Susi Mai influenced graphics/colors down to specific features on the control system accommodates a smaller size person with a desire to ride something more feminine.
