2016 Cabrinha Drifter Kitesurfing Kite

Available sizes: 4.5m, 5.5m, 7m, 8m, 9m, 11m, 13m

Product Description:

Rider Profile: Specially designed for kitesurfing in waves and surf freestyle.

The industry’s number one surf kite is back with two new bridle tuning options. One tuning option optimizes performance for offshore wind conditions, and the other optimizes performance for onshore winds. Its standout characteristic, coined “Slack Line Drift”, defines its exceptional ability to drift downwind and stay aloft when the lines are slackened. This has put the Drifter kite at the top of its class. Dominating the podium with 2x World Kitesurfing Wave Championship titles in both the men’s and women’s divisions, it delivers a perfect blend of the best elements of surfing and kitesurfing. The Drifter’s ability to get you up and going with a short depower travel allows you to drop in, accelerate, then dump the power completely to snap or carve turns. Its synergistic design allows it to be there when you need it… and get out of the way when you don’t.
