Charge every wave

Get ready for the ride of your life. It is all about down the line riding, the commitment as you turn into the wave and your love of big hacks and sprays. Our passion and endless search for the perfect wave kite are reflected in the development of the Cabo. Share the feeling with us and try out our ultimate wave kite, the Cabo.

With its light weight, Tri-strut design and swept tips the Cabo is capable of sitting further back in the window to follow you down the line with impeccable downwind drift as you concentrate on finding your perfect line and sweet spot in the pocket. The combination of open-C platform and short Reactive Micro Bridle with new sliders works in harmony to maximize turning speed and kite feedback. With low bar pressure and amazing stability hooked or unhooked the Cabo always lets you ride the wave and forget about flying the kite.

Because the waves that you ride demand respect we build the Cabo Surf Tough. We have included Double Core Rip Stop, Canopy Framing and our new Twist-Lock LE valve to ensure the Cabo can survive any wave you can line up for. For 2014 we’ve revised the wingtip shape for more responsive turn-in and created a new harmonized-arc LE profile to deliver greater stability and smoother power delivery in gusty conditions. With an increased sweet spot and greater low end you’ll be able to ride a smaller size than you expected.

The Cabo is the number one choice of Pedro Henrique and Nuno ‘Stru’ as they compete in wave events all around the globe as it’s sure to always let them express their unique strapless styles. This season we’ve introduced a new 8m size to the line up to give you the perfect kite size choice in all conditions. If wave riding means everything to you, like it does to R&D team members Peter Stiewe and Jordi Modolell then you should own a Cabo so you can charge every wave

Designer’s Vision

The Cabo V2 grew from my passion for waveriding. Refining the Cabo has allowed me to combine work and pleasure. I’ve developed the new Cabo with riders from all over the globe and we all agree, it's the best kite available for riding waves.
