Re: Where's the freeride 5 struts kites ??

I said nothing about Ozone Edge, North Rebel, Switch Nitro cause while being marketet as freeride kites ,are high AR kites more focused on big air,jumps and speed.....SS Rally and XR5 more of a Delta kite ...none of them an allrounder focused on the freeride/wave.... And no,i don't see any improveme...

Amazed at how fast we ditched all the 5 struts SLE's and freeride kites from the market :o :o ,only Cabrinhas SB remaining with a médium AR , really?? I personally see the superiority of 3 struters ( or mono ) for lighter to moderate winds freeride or waves, but from 8m size to down if you do usuall...

Re: 2018 Cabrinha Switchblade 10m Issue’s

Re: Cabrinha FX 2018- Good for waves?

Yes ,without any doubt , it is super stable , it drifts ok and slacks lines perfectly , it's also fast turning in small sizes,low/med bar pressure and good feedback .

Re: Switch Element5 vs Cabrinha Drifter

In the Med sea conditions i usually ride , side on beachbreaks and few cleaner points of hip to shoulder high waves in mid/high teens windrange, not that i need this amount of drift , but something more " slashy" and grunty with ...
