Cabrinha kites have been ridden to the top of podiums and World Tour Championships in Freestyle, Surf, Wakestyle and Speed competitions. They have been the choice of some of the most influential personalities in the sport including figures in the public limelight.
Founded, inspired and driven by Maui-based waterman, Pete Cabrinha, Cabrinha Kites produces kitesurfing equipment for water sports adventure seekers. Pete’s approach to innovation has been the driving force behind our development philosophy, keeping the brand technically and culturally connected to our customers. After joining forces with Neil Pryde in 2000, Cabrinha benefited greatly from the Pryde Group’s rich history of producing yacht and windsurfing sails.
In February 2020, the brand was purchased by Pete Cabrinha and Water Bound Investments, led by former professional kitesurfer and long-time Cabrinha professional athlete Jon Modica.
With the research and development center and brand headquarters located on Maui, the innovation ground zero of water sports, Cabrinha has played a ground-breaking role in the evolution of surf sports with its pioneering efforts in kitesurfing, tow-surfing, foil boarding, and wing surfing.
Over the years, Cabrinha has lead the industry in innovation, performance, and safety. With a distribution network in over 70 countries worldwide we focus on customer service and satisfaction. Producing products powered by a 100% renewable source (the wind), we continue to be socially connected to like minded people who enjoy the water, are protective of the planet and are stewards of the ocean.
