I believe you will find that the 2014 SB 10 has more low end than the 10m Park. Think you also like the 11m Vector more in the surf. Compared to the 10SB I think you will find that the 8m Drifter is more similar to 7m SB than an 8m SB. Why don't you just get the 11m Drifter?

kenn f:
I'm just letting you know what I have experienced from personal use of all the kites in your post.

The 2014 10m SB has a better low end than the 2014 Park
Compared to SB, the Drifters have ride 1 meter smaller than what i sprinted on the kites; so, an 11m Drifter is similar to a 10m SB, an 8m Drifter is similar to a 7m SB.

Call a Cabrinha shop and see what they say...call a few shops...send to Cabrinha website and send them your questions.

All three Cabrinha models you mentioned are great kites; SB, Drifter, Vector. Good luck with your decision
