THE NEW MOTO

INTRODUCING CABRINHA'S FREERIDE TRIPLE THREAT

 

The All-New Moto kite leads us into a new era of performance kitesurfing that smashes all conventional thinking. The Moto allows you to break away from freeriding into free surfing and foil boarding which makes it a triple threat with an incredibly wide range of use.

“Every year we throw down a challenge and our designers happily step up to meet it. This was the case with our all new Moto kite. This project grew from a humble 3 strut kite design into a triple threat perfor-mance beast that shatters any metaphoric box that tries to contain it. The Moto is simply one of our highest performing kites to date with a massive range of use. With cutting edge skills in Freeride, Freesurf, and Foiling, the Moto could simply be the only kite you’ll ever need.” - Pete Cabrinha

      Dear Cabrinha friends and family,
       
      Over the last twenty years, Cabrinha has carefully crafted our kite range to serve every facet of the sport. Our success is achieved by implementing a delicate balance of innovation and refinement. Knowing when to push boundaries and when to lock in a winning design. No one knows this design method better than Dudu Mazzocato.
       
      As we approach our twentieth anniversary it brings me great pleasure to announce the hiring of Dudu Mazzocato to the position of Chief Kite Designer for Cabrinha.
       
      Dudu’s in-depth experience in kite design harks back to the very genesis of our sport. Dudu wrote the original kite design software used to create some of our sports most iconic inflatable kites. His collaboration with legends like Don Montague helped to develop a fledgling sport into the vibrant industry it is today.
       
      This collaboration evolved into ground breaking projects like the Makani (kite generated) Power project and the innovative Kite Boat project. Developing unique inflatable kites without precedent or a pre-existing road map are the kind of challenges that Dudu thrives on.
       
      The hiring of Dudu Mazzocato kicks off a new era of design and development for Cabrinha. With a renewed focus on innovation and progression we are extremely excited to raise the level yet again.

      DESIGNING THE FUTURE: DUDU MAZZOCATO
       

       
      Dudu Mazzocato was born in Brazil and graduated as Naval Engineer from the University of São Paulo. His passion for aviation and water sports has been a driving force in Dudu’s career. With a focus on developing custom software for various applications he is able to fuel his never ending curiosity. For the past 20 years, Dudu's professional life has been closely related to the design of aircrafts, sails, kites, and hydrofoils, proving his innovative talent and approach to kite design.
       
      As a commercial helicopter and airplane pilot and aviation enthusiast, Dudu applies concepts from year's experience in theory and practice. Dudu developed the first Kite Design CAD Software and worked on the the first factory production kites starting in 1998. As an engineer, Dudu brought the technical knowledge to kite parameters such as aspect ratio, profile distribution, force vectors, and aerodynamics. In his home country of Brazil, Dudu helped to develop kite schools, training new talented riders, and constantly helping to progress the sport of kitesurfing.
