Cabrinha FX

Postby shawn13 » Thu Feb 12, 2015 6:39 pm

Im kind of surprised there's been no chatter about the new Cabrinha FX. If its a secret, its a poorly kept one as ive seen it plastered on Instagram. And on seabreeze they had a posting about the demo for it.

Nick Jacobsen was number #2 in height with the kite yesterday at the KotA, so my question for people who've tried it: is this kite really that good?

Experienced1 - What size is that? Is it a one size kite or are there different sizes?

Do you really think that because Nick was jumping one of the highest, the FX must be a great kite?

Guess all the riders jumping below 10m must have crappy kites then.

Is it an airstyle kite with better hooked in boosting and hangtime than the SB?
