It’s Monday, and that means it’s time for Rou Chater’s Intriguing Beings Podcast, click here to check out this weeks episode with Pete Cabrinha! It’s an incredibly insightful conversation with one of the heroes of our sport and a truly great waterman!
I was very privileged to chat to Pete Cabrinha earlier this year. Pete is one of Hawaii’s most talented watermen, a pioneer of many of the ocean sports we all love. He had a glittering windsurfing career in the 80’s and was part of the first group of riders to tow surf the monstrous waves at Jaws.
Pete has a huge passion for trying new things on the water and more recently he’s become totally addicted to foil surfing. He picked up kiteboarding before it was even really a sport and he’s the driving force behind one of the world’s biggest kiteboarding brands, Cabrinha.
Rou also asks about his love of art and travelling and there are some great stories from the very early days of his windsurfing career.
By Rou ChaterRou has been kiting since the sports inception and has been working as an editor and tester for magazines since 2004. He started IKSURFMAG with his brother in 2006 and has tested hundreds of different kites and travelled all over the world to kitesurf. He's a walking encyclopedia of all things kite and is just as passionate about the sport today as he was when he first started!
