2019 Cabrinha Moto Kite Review

2019 Cabrinha Moto Kite Review


Hey, Jason here and I’m going to talk to you today about the 2019 Cabrinha Moto. It’s a new kite to the Cabrinha lineup. I’ve got the Moto XO in front of me – the
feminine color way – and I’m going to tell you what I love about this kite. I’ve been using the Switchblade and the Drifter for many many years. This year I’ve been using the Moto exclusively. I’m going to explain to you why I love this
kite and why it checks all the right boxes that I want out of a kite for what I like
to do and what most people like to do kiteboarding. I love the Cabrinha Switchblade for upwind ability,
for its big boosting ability, wind range and high-performance free riding. And I love the Drifter because I’m always
on a surfboard strapless and love the Drifter for wave kiting, forgiveness and easy relaunch. So all those attributes are really my favorite
things about those two kites are things I always wish could be melded into one kite. And for 2019 Cabrinha’s gone ahead and done
that with the Moto. Great for strapless jumping. Great for wave riding – especially more onshore
conditions. It’s really maneuverable and moderate bar
pressure like the Drifter and very forgiving in the hands. But it goes up very well – much better than
the Drifter – which I really like. Again with a longshore current, or just because
I want to get back to the lineup and back to the next wave. So that’s what I love about the Cabrinha Moto
for my style of riding with a surfboard strapless both for freestyle and wave riding. The Moto really checks all the boxes I’m looking
for. Also for riders who are doing multiple disciplines
of riding – particularly free-ride twin tip and foiling – the Moto does everything you’d
want for those. Again, some of the best attributes of the
Switchblade – great for twin tip riding, going upwind, boosting ability – you get a lot of
that with the Moto. And then you also get a lot of the ease of
use, easy relaunch, light/moderate bar pressure and forgiveness of the kite with the drift
that it has – great for the beginner/intermediate riders. Wrapping up: The Moto is an awesome kite for
2019 for most people. They are available right here at Big Winds. Give us a call. We’d be stoked to answer any question about
a Moto and get a quiver in your hands!
