August 10, 2013 Demo @ Sherman Island
Filmed and produced in the Hawaiian Islands, the birth place of Cabrinha kites. We blend dedication to innovation, modern craftsmanship, and riders with mad skills, and top it off with a talented Cabrinha Films crew. Here is a little taste of what’s coming soon.
Rob Douglas US-55 wins all 5 kitesurfing long distance races at the 2013 Aruba Hi- Winds event on the Cabrinha Velocity race kite over the 4th of July weekend.
The 5.3 mile course started at The Fisherman Huts and ran north to Arashi Beach and then back to Eagle Beach. The typical offshore Arubian winds of 20 to 25kts allowed riders to rig big and make quick work of the fast downwind course.
On our never ending quest to bring new development in kiting to the forefront, we have come across a genius new line management system. Our good friend and long time Cabrinha rider, Brett Lickle has been kiting from day one. From tester, to instructor his passion as an innovative kiter often brings him to our offices with great ideas. And we are stoked to fill you in on his latest.
The "T" system simplify’s line winding and requires no tools or gizmos. This hook and go method is a way to beat the system so you never have to string or lay out your lines again.

The Crathorne Clan takes us on a light hearted kiting adventure to South America as they pay homage to great grandfather Alan Davidson in a coast-to-coast trip.
"100 years ago my great grandfather arrived by steamer in Argentina and made the epic journey travelling by train, foot and horse and cart over the Andes to Chile. My family was trying to follow in his footsteps, kitesurfing anywhere we could along the way.
Atlantic to Pacific??? Check!! 4560 km by automobile. 4753 m by foot. More nights under canvas than in beds. More days kiting than not." Polly Crathorne.

"With epic battles, a great format, great conditions, top notch race organization and a massive wipeout in the last race where I took out fellow American team-mate Adam Koch - sorry brother! Thank you Cabrinha and the horsepower of the new Velocity race kite...my kite of choice!" Bryan Lake.
