In 2012 the Drifter surf kite was a breakaway success. Surfers worldwide have now come to know the benefits of “drift stability”. Drift stability, one of the Drifter’s prominent features, is the kites ability to stay afloat and drift downwind when the kite is depowered. This so called slack line drift function allows the rider to power into the wave, then shut the kite power down and surf as if the kite was not even there. When the rider needs to power back up the kite is quick to re- engage and power the rider to the next section. The Drifter’s hybrid design is slightly more upright and compact in shape. This makes the Drifter turn on a dime, and power and depower on command. When the wind conditions are marginal and you need to steer the kite a lot, the Drifter will surgically place the kite where you need it exactly when you need it.

  • Surf specific 3 strut design
  • Excellent slack line drift
  • High depower

KITE TECH:



Skeletal Frame
- All Cabrinha Kites are designed and built on a Skeletal Frame foundation. Skeletal frame technology allows us to make a lighter more durable kite by strategically placing the reinforcement weight materials into a framework that surrounds the lighter weight canopy materials.
Durable dacron frame locks in the intended shape. Woven nylon ribbon reinforcement on the leading edge closing seam. Triple stitch in the high load areas. A second layer protects the high stress strut sections. Double ripstop reinforces the perimeter of the kite providing a transition between the lighter and heavier materials. The canopy is shaped with a light weight yet highly durable polyester woven material. Molded EVA chafe protectors. Leadering Edge Protectors.

Pump - Our new Sprint Pump and our all new Airlock valve closes the loop on our Sprint Single Point Inflation System. The pump's design diaphragm has been improved for smoother pumping action and increased longevity. The Sprint Pump's hose connection now mates perfectly with our all new exclusive Airlock two way valve without the need for an adapter.

Airlock - The all new Airlock improves on the industry's best inflation/deflation valve. The new Airlock completes our Sprint single point inflation system. The new one way valve allows for a higher volume of air to pass through it. Airlock 2 has a new coaxial type of hose attachment which now does not require an adapter to work with our new Sprint pump. Just attach the hose directly to the valve with a quick quarter turn.

Line Manager - This year we have included a simple to use line management tool. Each time you wind your lines onto the control bar you can attach the ends of the lines to the line manager in sequence. That way, when its time to reattach your lines they will be free of tangles. Setting up your lines has never been easier.

Sprint Clamps
- The Spring clamps which restrict the flow of air out of the struts have been improved for a more positive closure.

Bridle Guides
- We have reduced the size and weight of the stainless steel bridle guide.
