The 2011 Cabrinha Plasma went through a serious process of research and development as well as extensive testing before hitting the market. That is because the Cabrinha team aimed at two things: extra freeride performance and extra light wind performance. And it has done a great job, since the board is powerful, easy to maneuver and fast and can sprint through the waves when the wind barely blows.

Cabrinha has used the latest technology and the fines materials to make sure that the board will meet the requirements of the most demanding riders as well as the highest quality standards. The board is light, dynamic, has nice pop and offers a very comfortable ride. Once you set foot on the plasma, you will love the way it performs.

The new kiteboard models released by Cabrinha for the 2011 season are really impressive. The well known manufacturer has found the secret to blend a multitude of user friendly and performance features in these boards, so any rider out there can choose a board which seems especially crafted for his skill and style. The Plasma is a new generation type of board and it is engineered to take freeride and light wind riding to a whole new dimension.

The board features a squared shape and longer, refined outlines to assure a smooth and fast glide. It has a wider surface and packs more volume for increased light wind efficiency. Actually, the Cabrinha Plasma will get you going pretty fast when the other riders sit on the beach and wait for the wind to pick up. And if the wind does pick up, there is no problem, because the plasma still performs outstanding.

The board is quite powerful and has an impressive to speed, so it is a good choice for racing also. Cabrinha has enhanced the plasma with a flat rocker line to make sure is has nice acceleration, upwind and speed abilities. At the same time the new ABS rails provide extra stability and increased steering response. An improved bottom shape assures optimal power release and extra grip in turns. The rider can run at high speeds, perform tricks and jumps easy and with little or no effort at all. The board feels very lively and offers a direct and responsive control.

The Plasma is engineered on a 100% Balsa core structure and uses a backprinted digital print topsheet which increases overall durability and prevents UV and abrasion damage. This construction makes the board super light and easy to use in light breezes and assures extra stiffness and durability. The rider can choose from several stance options, depending on his skills and style.

When the wind barely blows and can hardly power up the kite, the Cabrinha Plasma is the board which will help you experience a fast, thrilling ride. The board performs really nice when it is used with Cabrinha Crossbow IDS kite and the Deluxe seat harness.

Runs well, but not in chop. I don't like that it sprays and the tips catch a lot. On the other hand it has good bottom end.

Plasma runs well in light wind and it is easy to drive upwind. It is also one of the most user friendly boards I've seen. You can learn lots of tricks with it. It doesn't have huge pop, but it jumps nice and it is easy to handle....more
