Monday, 20 October 2014 16:10:35 Europe/London

Cabrinha Switchblade 2015 Review

Friday, 5 September 2014 16:58:19 Europe/London

Friday 29th August was a very exciting day at FC Watersports. Not only did we receive our first delivery of Cabrinha 2015 kites and boards, but my very own Cabrinha Switchblades arrived!

 

I have long been a fan of the Switchblade; it is still the kite that I choose to ride year on year. So, does the 2015 10th anniversary model feel any different. I headed straight to Branksome Dene Chine in Bournemouth to try it out.

 

Read on to hear about the new Cabrinha Switchblade...
