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. 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.
Cabrinha's success over the last seventeen years can be attributed to a dedicated team of passionate people taking inspiration from a rich water sports heritage. As a pioneer of the sport Pete holds a masters status in surfing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing. After joining forces with Neil Pryde in 2000, Cabrinha benefited greatly from the Pryde Groups rich history of producing yacht and windsurfing sails in their state of the art facility. This paired with our research and development facility in Maui which is situated for testing in any and all wind and water conditions assures consistency and accuracy from design to production and ensures products we are proud to stand behind. Over the years the brand has been able to lead the industry into new eras of safety, comfort and performance with a world wide distribution network focused on customer service and satisfaction.
Cabrinha kites have been ridden to World Tour Championships in Freestyle, Surf, Wakestyle and Speed and have been the choice of some of the most influential personalities in the sport including figures in the public limelight.
