Cabrinha steps up its foil game in 2020 with the new HI:RISE VARIAL series that offers universal performance for any skill level that wants access to foiling in the surf. These are high lift, smooth cruising designs that feature loose and reactive carving and can cross into any foil discipline from surf to SUP, wake to wing or light wind kite foiling. Cabrinha’s new construction keeps things light and stiff with the new wings made of Paulownia wood core and durable basalt fibers. The tail wing is also adjustable forward or aft for tuning the foil for more carvability or straight line tracking. The new wide nosed fuselage is more streamlined and provides a really solid connection to the front wing. The test team rode the HI:RISE Large which had the largest surface area of any front wing in the test and was a test favourite for ultra light winds. On a surf foil with tons of lift like this, it’s key to ensure you don’t have too much kite power and lift, in fact just enough to pull yourself out of the water with a hard dive of the kite is best. With extra lift from a surf oriented foil like this, you can pump yourself onto a plane and work the kite for power when you need it. Super smooth carving from edge to edge, the HI:RISE is ideal for any rider that wants a versatile foil to learn to foil in lighter winds and advance their skills in the surf.
