Cabrinha is one of the most prestigious brands in the kiteboarding industry. Every product developed by the Cabrinha team is designed according to the highest performance and quality standards. The new 2012 Wakeskate makes no exception. It is a high performance wakestyle board intended to suit the needs of competition riders. It is a powerful board which has an explosive pop, yet it is easy to use and fun to ride. The new 2012 Wakeskate borrows some of the features of the previous versions, but it is enhanced to offer even more efficiency.

Wakestyle is a spectacular and fun discipline. Apart from talent and determination it requires specific gear. Most of the wakestyle tricks require a specific board. Cabrinha has come up with the Wakeskate, a unique wakestyle machine. The board was developed by the Cabrinha team together with pro rider and champ Jason Stone. Their collaboration was a success and the Wakeskate is one of the boards which offer performance close to perfection.

The board has a wider shape and features a hydrodynamic profile with squared tips. These features make is fast and accurate. The board reaches an impressive speed, yet it is easy to handle and very responsive. The new rocker line provides excellent upwind performance, it increases the grip and improves the acceleration.

Cabrinha has used a harder flex pattern in the design of the wakeskate. This flex pattern, combined with the rocker line generates an explosive pop and also improves the overall control. The board is also very steady and behaves predictable in a wide range of conditions. The board doesn’t use any fins, but the tips and rails are enhanced to provide a very good grip while producing no spray at all.

The board is constructed using a vertically laminated paulownia Wood core and ABS sidewalls. This construction makes it extremely tough while maintaining a light weight. The structure generated the hard flex needed for wakestyle tricks. The new EVA top increases the kick in the tip and tail and also assures a very comfortable ride. The Wakeskate can be used by pro riders as well as by less experienced ones looking for a fast, thrilling wakestyle session.

A board that does the job well. It's easy to throw around and goes upwind relatively fast. It's a bit heavy, but it's rock solid. And it pops really nice and hold the rails really well.
