“Back Mobe is an unhooked back loop followed by a handle pass in the same direction as you travel. So in essence you´re doing a 720, two full rotations from the carve. The major problem people have when they try to perform this trick that they´re not sure if they are doing one spin, two and a half spins, one and a half spins or two spins, it can all become a bit confusing in the air.” – Kite Surfing Trick
Cabrinha team rider, Kyle Fletcher doing a Back Mobe in a secret location. Riding a 8m FX and his board is the CBL.
So this this season SAKA made their first stop of the tour in Cannon Rocks, 100km north of PE.
After bareley surviving the 10 ½ hour drive with my mental brother, we arrived at the beach to find perfect, flat and warm conditions and I knew it was going to be worth it!
Cedric and his team partnered up with SAKA to pull off a great first leg with some proper prize money and great spot prizes too $$ J The improved performaced of the re-designed Chaos really boosted my freestyle and gave me much more confidence to go bigger and higher.
Knackered after two days of tight competition I ended up coming 3rd for Junior Pro Freestyle and managed to take the win in Junior Pro Wave!
Thanks Don and Grant for kicking my season off with a bang!! (your support makes all the difference)
Hey my name is Luca Guerrini and this is my first blog entry for Cabrinha South Africa!
During Cape Town’s cold winter you don’t get the usual Cape Doctor pulling through, but there are those few days in winter where there is a nice little South Easter that pulls through and you can see that when the clouds start forming a tablecloth over Table Mountain.
It was about a 15-knot wind so I took out my 9m Chaos 2015 (the best kite for freestyle I would say). The board I used was a wood core X-Caliber 2014 which is also a super nice freestyle board with loads of pop and great upwind ability. The waves were about 3 ft. and it was about 15 degrees Celsius outside. I pulled off some super nice unhooked railey’s, unhooked bankrolls and S-bends. I nearly pulled off a railey to blind. I am now in Australia for a bit and there are some nice winds coming through so I am hoping to get in some sick sessions and represent CABRINHA!
Stay tuned for more updates, the content will get better and better and I’ll also add some pictures of the equipment that I’m using!
Hello everyone. My name is Cameron Ireland and I am 13 years old, I am a kitesurfer and I am sponsored by Cabrinha Kiteboarding and Mystic SA. This is my first blog that I am writing, so let’s see how it goes.
This month has been a crazy month with kiting and school. Our school orchestra went on a Talent Africa Competition and we got gold. So in July, we are off to New York to compete there. But the time that I have had left over I was right back in the water.
I have had a lot of fun with my friends this month. I have been helping my friend Garon with his kiting and he is doing really well. But on my side, I have been landing new tricks all the time. My trick of the month is Frontrolls. I have always wanted to do them but now I can. The trick I am very close to landing is a Flat 3. When I land them, I will be sure to write another blog about that.
This month has gone by so quickly, I am also starting to jump higher than ever before. It’s really a scary feeling but when you get used to it’s fine. Also what I have been doing this month is practicing my directional riding. I am riding waves strapless and am able to land a surface 180° turn, but yeah it has been an awesome month for me. I hope my first blog was okay for everyone. Thanks for the opportunity!
