Cabrinha has made kiteboarding enthusiasts a new favorite wave kite again, the 2020 Drifter kite! As we all know, the Drifter kite, as the name itself, offers us tons of drifting and dynamic flying experience. The Drifter can be used onshore and offshore. This kite gives you ample power to glide on the waters with stability -especially with a hydrofoil, this kite is super fast, stable, and responsive. Just like the other Cabrinha 2020 kites, it has very durable Nano ripstop material on its canopy and an optimized high-tenacity Dacron. Plus it is coated with plasma treatment to protect the 3-millimeter weave on the canopy. That is why this kite is unlike any other when it comes to the power it gives to drift and still be so stable at the same time because it is so light and durable.

One of the most interesting things about the Drifter is its ability to engage and disengage its power on command. While catching a wave you want all the power you need but while surfing, you often want the kite to completely disappear while you surf on your own power.
It's in this moment of pure surfing where you want a kite that 'drifts' down the line with you in a stable and predictable way. We dubbed this phenomenon Drift Stability and it is the crucial ingredient in a performance surf kite. And it's here where the Drifter has no equal.
