Cabrinha’s AV8 collection is out NOW! The AV8 collection is a precision crafted kite and hydrofoil board made from the highest quality materials. Each component is designed to maximise AV8’s efficiency in the hydrofoiling realm.

“The AV8 design concept places the rider directly in the middle of two incredibly tuned kiteboarding machines. Both the AV8 kite and board are designed to cut through the elements with minimum drag and maximum efficiency. Separately, the kite and board are phenomenal in their own right, but together they create the apex performance freeride experience. AV8 is the equivalent of a wind-driven supercar in every respect.” – Pete Cabrinha
