For 2008 Cabrinha present us 4 board models: Custom, Imperial, Prodigy and S-Quad
The all new Custom wake board breaks away from the pack with an entirely new approach to bottom design. The Custom sports a quad concave bottom and a new outline to deliver the ultimate combination of speed and drive. Developed and tested by Andre Phillip, the leader in the wakestyle movement, the Custom is dedicated to progressive wake style riding.
The Imperial continues to be the choice of riders who want to excel in all styles of riding. Since the Imperial lends itself to high speed riding through rough or choppy waters, Cabrinha added a concave bottom shape to help you get up to speed quicker. To handle the speeds even better, Cabrinha changed the outline slightly to increase the edge response and tracking. This has all been done while maintaining the forgiving feel and easy ride that it is well known for.
The Prodigy is the easiest way to get yourself up and riding with the least amount of effort. The Prodigy 48 and 58 is designed to provide a stable platform with fantastic edging capabilities. The new Prodigy is built with an ABS sidewall and polyurethane core construction.
Kitesurfing has come full circle back to its surfing roots with the introduction of the S-Quad. Years of design experience has gone into making the perfect kite surfboard. The S-Quad has all of the design elements of a true surfboard with the construction to match the kind of abuse the surf will likely dish out.
Designed by Pete Cabrinha, the S-Quad blends his fast tow-surfing rockers with a wider curvier outline to deliver a board that powers off the bottom and snaps in the hook. The 4 fins allow the rail to hold when you need it and let it bust loose on demand.
The S-Quad is constructed with an X-48 EPS core and a composite skin. The x-48 construction has been custom developed to the Cabrinha S-quad. The XPS core is machined to offer the optimal shape. A full wood laminate under the feet provides strength and impact resistance. We use a multi weight glass lay-up to provide the best combination of strength and weight.
When ridden with the new Revolver HD surf kite, its as close as you’ll get to the real thing. If you want just one board to handle a wide range of surf conditions the S-Quad is your board.
