Cabrinha Kiteboarding is pleased to announce the start of the 2008 Cabrinha Race Series. Beginning itâ€™s third year, the Cabrinha Race Series is not only the premier kite racing event in the world, it has led the way for the US Sailing Association to recognize KiteBoards as an official class of boat, the creation of the first ever US Nationals, and the introduction of kite course racing around the world, including the PKRA Tour (professional kite riderâ€™s association); all of which are steps towards an eventual Olympic competition.
With sponsors like Cabrinha Kiteboarding, the St. Francis Yacht Club, Ozonetravel, and Adventure Sports Miami, all leaders in their respective fields, it's easy to understand the success of the Cabrinha Race Series and itâ€™s leadership in the expansion of kite course racing around the world. The 2008 Cabrinha Race Series already has 51 participants signed up for this seasonâ€™s 13 race series; double from 2007
