No surprise if you live there and kite for 6 months your kites suffer a lot. There the sun, the high winds, and no offence but there the riders skill also.
And what do 6 months really say? Its all about the hours of use. Canopy material has a certain UV lifespan.
Goodluck finding something better.
This is Cabrinha's warranty statement:

If the date of purchase cannot be established, Cabrinha Kitesurfing will make a determination based upon on the last production year of the particular model, or on the condition of the equipment claimed...."

Do you see anywhere that using kites in Brazil does not apply to their warranty rules?
If their canopy material can't stand 6 months of kiting in good weather conditions than there should be only given less than 6 months warranty and not 1 year.
Am I wrong or do you see it differently?
What does Cabrinha has to say?
PS: Trust me, Australia's UV index is much higher...
