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.




Sizes: 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13

Specifically designed for kite surfing in waves and surf freestyle.


The all-new design of the Drifter preserves its legendary drift stability while widening its range of use. With a new lighter bar pressure option and Onshore and Offshore settings, the Drifter performs in any and all surf conditions. And when it comes to surf freestyle the Drifter gives you the pop and control needed to perform at the highest level.

  • The Drifter has a 100% redesign for the first time since its initial launch. The Drifter was not redesigned to change what it does in the surf, but more to modernize the kite to contain features like Pure Profile Panels and to increase its range of use as a strapless freestyle kite. The result is a kite that handles, behaves, and performs as one would expect in the surf – like a boss. As an added bonus, the kite lifts better for strapless airs, turns and sheets with significantly less bar input (i.e. “less bar pressure”), and has a slight increase on the low end. One kite to do it all on a surfboard. The small sizes of 4.5 and 5.5 have been replaced by 4, 5, and 6m designs.
