Overview

For 2015, Cabrinha has introduced an all new 13m size for the Contra. Now coming in sizes 13m, 17m and 15m, this kite is the go to option for light wind and low end ease. With it's skinny struts and leading edge, the kite flys fast and smooth while remaining light. It is all about exposing canopy for this model. The more canopy, the more power you are going to feel. The kite has a very nimble, gliding feeling when being flown. It actually drifts better than most light wind kites we see. This is impressive considering how much material you are working with. After flying the kite in several conditions in Cocoa Beach FL, we have found that the Contra does well both on the low end and when overpowered. It's light weight also makes it an excellent choice for the rascally hydrofoilers. This is probably the easiest kite to jump...it practically does it for you. When overpowered, you can get huge floaty jumps without loosing control or being jerked around.

The main appeal to this model is that it is efficient. Efficiency is key when we are talking light wind. There are plenty of big kites out there but blending the perfect match of size and weight is hard to do. The Cabrinha Contra does that. It's large, but you don't see the nasty side effects of a large grunty kite. The 13m and the 17m are our go to sizes to have on the upper end of your quiver.

Who For?

The Contra is for the kite enthusiast who must still get out when the wind is light. If you only ride when the wind is 20+ then don't waste your time here.  Beginners and intermediate riders will be completely comfortable on this one. We are actually using the 13m to teach this season and are already seeing great results. Advanced riders will love the smooth and efficient feeling along with big lofty jumping. Swept back wingtips make turning speed perfect for a larger kite.

Here is what Cabrinha says...

Upon activation of 1X’s single line flagging system the power of a kite is immediately killed and it will rest motionless on the water or land.
