Post general kiteboarding discussion topics here!
Now if Cabrinha could only perform a demo tour like a lot of their competitors do, then maybe we could actually try out some of their kites.
As a manufacture rep who's job requirements are sales, performing demos (or some other type of consumer interaction) and supporting my dealers, I'm disgusted by the lack of support by many of the reps in the kite industry. Marketing & hype doesn't mean much to anyone unless they can experience it for themselves. Demos tours are a very effective way to connect with customers and build business for dealers.
Kudos to the 9 kite companies that did manage to get on the road in 2012 to promote their brand & products locally!
I'm really hoping to see more than 9 players travel through for 2013... including Cabrinha!
We are now a dealer for Cabrinha here in our waterfront shop in Benicia and are gearing up for the Spring and Summer. We will be teaching with their gear and offering the full line from our waterfront shop in Benicia.
In terms of demo's, you know how we do it at Sherman! We will continue our annual Kite Naked summer bash / demo at Sherman Island featuring the Cabrinha gear as well as offering regular demo days in Benicia throughput the summer.
In terms of Benicia and the awesome conditions of the Carquinez Straits, we will be hosting many days of good times to check out the gear we carry (kite and sup) as well as working with the Benicia Yacht Club to integrate some kites into their weekly races which are held through the summer.
Lots more to come....!

Chris and Steve,
You boys need to get over the hill to the promised land and get a little more presence there...I've heard Peter and his team build some sweet gear for the surf....time to perhaps create a little gear stash in Santa Cruz - hint/hint/hint...
Oh, you don't need to wait till spring, as it seems spring has sprung early this year.
Get some, Z
As we ramp up the Cabrinha stock, we will carry more of the complete line. We can order in any special requests during this time.
We will make sure it happens.
