Freeride Kite #1

By piggelill  //  Uncategorized  //  Comments Off on Freeride Kite #1

Freeride kite nr.1. No other kite has made a bigger impression in the kite history. When Cabrinha introduced Crossbow did they actually drastically change the conditions for kiting. Year 2011 is the 6th version of the classic freeride kite of Crossbow that Cabrinha releases.

With crossbow are you getting a huge wind span and ability to kite in gusty winds like no other kites. I´ve been kiting myself with a 9 meter Cabrinha Crossbow in 23 m/s, with full depower, but still… Crossbows open arc design gives tons of lift and power. the crossbow is the kite for you that likes to ride fast, go upwind and jump high with long hang time. Crossbow is a true freeridee kite that is easy to water start, comes in top quality and with a great safety system combined with IDS – Intelligent Depower System.


I love Cabrinha!

My first post ever… I know that this site is not much to put in the christmas tree in this state, but bevare… My plan is to make this site into a site dedicated not only to kite surfers, but surfers who love to ride Cabrinha kites! Me myself has of course not tried every single kite brand out there, but a few… Cabrinha is by far the best kite brand I tried and simply love my cabrinhas. I have one crossbow and switchblade and will hopefully extend my collection with a nomad or a 2011 version later this year, I´ll keep you posted for sure!

Anyway, I´ll gather as much information about cabrinha kites as possible on this site and I hope that you as a visitor will leave this site somewhat clearer about benefits and drawback with different Cabrinhas kites.

Good wind!
