It’s in the name. Drift Stability is a term that was created and defined by this kite, and is often used by other brands but rarely duplicated. The worlds most iconic surf kite gives the rider the ultimate ability to quickly control the on off switch of the power, giving the ultimate versatility to either use the kites power, or the waves. The onshore / offshore setting allows riders to fine tune to the conditions on the day while allowing strapless freestyle riders to tweak the forward drive of the kite enabling more explosive tricks and loftier jumps.

The secret behind every Drifter that has become iconic in the industry. Focus on the wave, while your kite ‘Drifts’ effortlessly down the line.
Like with any Cabrinha kite, the Drifter comes packed with features to give you freedom to push your limits, whether in 1 foot or 10 foot waves.
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.
RAPID POWER CONTROL
No wave is the same, and the on demand rapid depower and power of the Drifter allows you to stay in the right place, or get to where you need to be.

HIGH TENACITY DACRON
Our Dacron is specifically designed for inflated kite structures. The construction of this material is very warp orientated using ultra high tenacity yarns with an increased thread count to combat elongation in the warp direction under the high inflation pressures. Lower elongation make for a more accurate kite with less deformation while in flight.
NANO RIPSTOP CANOPY
A higher level of performance can only be achieved when the kite's design properties are supported by a stable and reactive kite material. Nano Ripstop does just that.
Zirconia (ZrO2 or Zirconium Oxide) is known for its extreme strength and ability to withstand high heats and abrasion, Zirconia is the perfect material for the new Ceramic Pulleys. With no moving parts and built in safety, the new Cabrinha Ceramic Pulley is the next evolutionary step from the Cab Design Works team.

Cabrinha leads the industry in safety and performance. Since 2000, Cabrinha, a subsidiary of the Pryde Group, has climbed the ranks to take the position as the leading kitesurfing brand, selling in over 40 countries worldwide. Inspired and driven by Maui waterman, Pete Cabrinha, the company produces everything from kites to boards to accessories and sponsors the top athletes in the sport.
The Cabrinha approach to kiteboarding has evolved very much from the same philosophy that Pete has applied to his many years of surfing.
By keeping an open mind to all styles of riding and embracing new technologies, Cabrinha has been able to lead kitesurfing into a new era of performance.
