Jason Stone Joins Cabrinha


Jason Stone Joins Cabrinha
First ever kiter sponsored exclusively for wakeskating

Cabrinha and Jason Stone are proud to announce their sponsor partnership in wake skate development. Jason, who has been riding Cabrinha gear for the past few years, has taken the inevitable step and signed on to the Cabrinha international team. Cabrinha will be giving Jason, one of the premiere wakeskate kiters, free reign to test and design the next level of Cabrinha wakeskate equipment including a Jason Stone pro model.

Jason Stone says "I was hesitant at first because I wasn't sure if I was ready to be back in the game.  I left professional sports a few years ago to focus on life and family, but the wind and ocean have always been a part of my life. I am stoked with the amount of vision Cabrinha has shown in being willing to take me on as a team rider. I've always done things a bit differently, including focusing solely on wakeskating, and Cabrinha's wakeskate program allows me room to experiment and open the sport in new directions. I've had a strong personal relationship with many people in the Cabrinha family so there isn't much of a transition; I've been here the whole time."

After 9 years kiting, Jason Stone decidedly became a "wake skate only" rider last year. The progression of his riding clearly shows his dedication. Pete Cabrinha says "Jason has almost single handedly re-written what is possible in wakeskating. He's set an entirely new benchmark. Not just in kite wakeskating, but in wakeskating period. We're happy to have him on board to push this sector of the sport. I'm excited to see where he can take it."
