North Kiteboarding was set up in 2001 by B&M and has become an independent brand. Within one year, North Kiteboarding has become one of the 3 top suppliers on the market thanks to both innovative design and high quality. The North team strives to create innovative and high quality products. In order to integrate the latest global trends, our products are tested and developed by our team riders and designers at the 3 kite hot spots Tarifa, Gorge and Hawaii.
North Kiteboarding immediately assimilates new trends and styles, and has set new standards from the very outset, thanks to the high level of both team riders and designers.
Since 2000, Cabrinha, a subsidiary of the Pryde Group, has climbed the ranks to take the position as the leading kitesurfing brand, selling in over 40 countries worldwide. Inspired and driven by Maui-based waterman, Pete Cabrinha, the company produces everything from kites to boards to accessories and sponsors the top athletes in the sport. The Cabrinha approach to kiteboarding has evolved very much from the same philosophy that Pete has applied to his many years of surfing. By keeping an open mind to all styles of riding and embracing new technologies, Cabrinha has been able to lead kitesurfing into a new era of performance.
Our research and development facility in Maui is perfectly situated for testing in any and all wind and water conditions. This, combined with our own state of the art production facility, assures consistency and accuracy from design to production.
Our primary mantra has always been one of innovation; within every category we work relentlessly to bring something new to the market that solves a problem or creates a new opportunity.
Innovation is not only about engineering. It’s also about riding and imagining how people might want to ride in the future. It’s about creating art and product design that is as beautiful as it is functional. It’s about always delivering you a bit more than you expected (as we take pleasure in the details). It’s about making things more functional and more durable wherever we can and about finding new ways to share our love of the sport, creating stoke and having as much fun as possible whilst working to build the most innovative brand on the planet.
Our commitment to durability is evidenced in the innovations we’ve brought to market. We were the first company to offer a two-year breakage warranty on our twintips, we developed both the lightest and strongest surfboard on the market with our active construction, and we created the Dyneema Load Frame which has essentially doubled the lifespan on our kites. And our commitment to developing the most durable products on the market is ongoing. The desire for this comes from a few places. Primarily we want to build premium products to give you the best riding experience, and we understand that when you invest in something good, you want it to last. Secondly, we believe the path to reducing our environmental impact is making everything last twice as long.
