Cabrinha Contra 2019 Kite >>
Sprint: The Sprint™* inflation system is a simple to use feature to quickly inflate your kite to an even pressure. The Sprint™ system uses a single inflation point to connect your high volume, two way Cabrinha pump. As you pump your kite with air, all struts and your leading edge inflate quickly and simultaneously to the desired pressure. The supplied leash pump and threaded valve connection keeps your kite under control even when pumping up directly in the wind.
Frame: Cabrinha kites are designed
and built on a Skeletal Frame foundation. By placing the most durable,
160 gsm Dacron
Arc: A dynamic arc allows the
kite to have two distinct arc shapes. The kite takes on one shape while
flying, and another shape while in resting mode on the water.
The flying shape occurs as soon as the kite gets airborne and the front lines are under tension. The flying shape is the kite’s intended shape which is optimized for the intended usage. The arc shape is held in place by a simple set of bridling.
The Cabrinha Contra is perfect for any rider that wants to extend their riding into the lightwind arena with a responsive, lightwind kite.
Light wind used to be considered the archenemy of kiteboarding. That was until Cabrinha introduced the Contra light wind kite with its unmatched efficiency and performance combination. Every riding style and discipline now has a kite to bridge your riding into the light wind arena.
The Contra’s light weight 3-strut hybrid design performs incredible things in what used to be known as the unrideable realm. A true light wind performer in any and all riding categories.
The Contra now benefits from years of refinement as the kite that first perfected light wind efficiency. The Contra is an ideal extension to any kite quiver. It performs like a small kite while it delivers the power of a much larger kite. This makes it a performer in any and all riding categories.
The Contra is able to execute sharp and precise turning. It has the power of a larger kite while maintaining the finesse of a smaller kite. Tuned to deliver the type of performance that will widen the scope of what you can do in light winds, the Contra is the perfect kite to extend your game into the lightwind arena.
Wingtip Setting Options: Cabrinha offer multiple tuning options which completely change the way a kite flies. These options allow you to customize the feedback and bar pressure, adjust where the kite sits in the window, and balance the power / de-power range of the kite. Cabrinha highly recommends testing the different settings for yourself to find out what feels the best to you.
Control: Power Control
settings quickly adjust the power level of the kite. Each
rear line “pig tail” connector has three power
positions which you can connect. The middle position is the
factory recommended position. Create
more power by connecting the knot closest to the kite or less
power by connecting to the knot
The Cabrinha Contra wraps all of these features into one kite to deliver:
Keep in mind that this technique works best when most of your forward movement is stopped. If you have your board with you, put your feet in the straps, and sit upright with your board in front of you to slow or stop all of your forward movement. This will keep tension on the lines. Do not swim towards the kite as you would with a classic kite relaunch method.

Riding in 8 knots! Dan Eaton
As soon as you are in the water - you will also notice you will be typically the first and only person out there under 10 knots! Both myself and my larger sized pie-eating friend were out on the Contra in about 8 knots and were comfortably riding in the glass smooth waves as well as keeping upwind.
You dont typically get to start jumping until 12 knots but with this kite - it will have you boosting big air in the same conditions - allowing you to land in mirror flat water. The hangtime on this kite is truly amazing!
Not wanting to sound bias but it's a Cabrinha product and they dont come better built than this kite - super strong and reinforced in every aspect.
Bar pressure is a little more than most but I think you need it in the conditions you will use it to allow you to keep riding in the light winds.
Turning on this kite is almost instantaneous - any input on this bar and the kite is moving along and powering through the turns with the same amount of power as is flying straight.
Overall - this kite pulls upwind like a train
- the jumps are big and floaty and getting up and riding wave
in less than 10 knots is always a bonus! Its an excellent
quality - well built product!
