2023 Cabrinha Drifter Surf Kite.  

 

One kite that has become synonymous with Cabrinha is the Drifter. A kite that does what its name says. A kite that allows kiters to experience the power of the ocean, a kite that lets you focus on the job at hand instead about worrying about where it is, or what is doing. With multiple world titles behind it and more barrel time than any other kite in the market, the new Drifter has taken the next evolutionary leap in delivering an expanded ocean experience.

 

 

 

The all-new Lite Frame and HTD Lite material, gives the most reactive Drifter kite to date, allowing you to put the kite where you want it in the air, no matter what style of riding you are doing.

 

 

 

Whether you are taking to the skies for Strapless Big Air, charging down the line on a screaming point break or ripping wind swell, the Drifter will always deliver.

BOMBER CONSTRUCTION

Like with any Cabrinha kite, the Drifter comes packed with features to give you freedom to push your limits, whether in 1 or 10 foot waves.

PURE PROFILE PANELS

Pure profile Panels - Strategically placed panels allow for a seamless and smooth airflow over the most important area of the flying surface, creating an efficient and true to design profile that no others can match.

" The drifter has been a staple in the cabrinha range for a long time, but its nice to see a fresh new look for 2023. With a completely new shape and bridle, it's allowed for faster turning and better performance without compromising that drift stability we've all come to know and love. For those that like a lighter bar feel, the A setting makes for the lightest bar pressure on a drifter yet, but the B setting still delivers that solid reliable feel that allows you to focus on wave riding without worrying about the kite. I love that it's still a kite I can trust in what heavy conditions are thrown at me!" – Keahi de Aboitiz
