Cabrinha UK kicked off the first youth training camps in 2008, culminating in the announcement of a full year sponsorship to one of the lucky riders. Much to 15 year old Dan Sweeney's surprise, his name was called to the podium.
You participated in the first Cabrinha youth program in the UK. Can you tell us a little about it?
I heard about the youth training from a good mate and it was to basically to meet some international team riders such as Andre Phillip, Susi Mai and Dave Hastilow and to help all the youngsters in the UK. But to mostly help and support the future of the younger kids who will make a mark on kitesurfing. But not just terms of riding but tuning kit, working on profiles and learning new tricks. As the first year of the Cabrinha youth training we didn’t know what to expect but it was really good to meet people your own age, learn new stuff and get your name out there.
At the end of the year, one rider was to be chosen and would receive a year’s contract through Pryde Group UK which encompasses Cabrinha Kites and NPX Wetsuits. I worked extra hard in my riding, media coverage and my profile. Much to my complete surprise at the last BKSA freestyle event of the year, the winner was announced and I won!!! It completely surprised me and I would just like to thank Cabrinha for this amazing opportunity and thanks to all the riders who put me forward for the deal.
Now that Jesse Richman has had a chance to breathe (and finally get that GTI!), we asked him to take a look back at his experience on
You just finished the tour on top. What do you attribute your success?
This year truly was a pleasure and I never could have done as well as I did without all the awesome support from my friends on the tour, my sponsors and my Rocking Gear!!!
What riders from the tour do you think deserves some props?
There are so many riders pushing the limits and devoting it all to style. I think that every one deserves some props. We are going to see more and more incredible riding from some awesome guys and gals!!!
World-class surfer Grant “Twiggy” Baker of Durban, South Africa has officially signed onto the Cabrinha team. Twiggy is a hellman when it comes to big surf and we are stoked he is joining the kite world. He took the 2007 XXL big wave title for a 60 ft monster at Dungeons and is nominated for all categories in 2008. Twig brings an explosive energy to the program and we can’t wait to see what he does with a kite.
