Cabrinha Drifter Icon 2021 kite only

“There are no products that represent kite surfing as well as the Cabrinha Switchblade and Drifter Kites. Heroes have been made, records have been broken, and the path to progression has been attainable by all through these iconic kites. This year we celebrate enduring performance with the Switchblade and Drifter limited edition Icon Series. “ - Pete Cabrinha

One of the most interesting things about the Drifter is its ability to engage and disengage its power on command. While catching a wave you want all the power you need but while surfing, you often want the kite to completely disappear while you surf on your own power.

It’s in this moment of pure surfing where you want a kite that ‘drifts’ down the line with you in a stable and predictable way. We dubbed this phenomenon Drift Stability and it is the crucial ingredient in a performance surf kite.

It’s here where the Drifter has no equal and as such has helped us crown world champions and get riders into waves and barrels that were previously thought to be the realm of just elite surfers.

The 250 limited edition Drifter ICON collection kites give a nod towards their industry changing heritage and give riders the chance to enjoy their own completely unique product which represents an Iconic legacy.

Each Drifter Icon kite comes with an official badge collectors number and limited edition ICON kite bag.

Testimonials

★★★★★

This is the way a kiteboarding shop should be. Staff are super friendly. They take the time to understand your requirements, provide advice and never put any pressure on you to buy anything. There's a huge range of stock and I've been able to demo a great range of kites and boards over the years.
After sales service is the best. Recently I had an issue with a kite I'd bought there which was well out of warranty and they didn't hesitate to inspect, diagnose and repair the issue for me and get me back on the water.

You can’t go wrong buying your kites, boards, foils, and all your gear from Kitepower - and I’ll tell you why. The culture of the business mirrors the passion and dedication of the company’s founder, Steve McCormack. And culture matters. When you purchase from Kitepower you’re purchasing from a team of kiting enthusiasts and experts who will look after you. You’ll be purchasing from a family owned business that will do the right thing and put your safety and comfort first. I fully understand that you might not have an opportunity to meet Steve. And maybe if you're purchasing online you won't step foot inside their Sydney location. But I can tell you that Steve’s dedication to kiters and to the sport of kiting is imprinted into the DNA of Kitepower and the team.
