the most progressive rider on the planet. I guess no further comments needed.
Here are my 2 attempts of “Tsunami BS720” . I tried it few times in Turkey and I really want to land it before the end of 2015. I think one attempt before guys took the camera out was pretty serious so it’s a good chance that you will see me nailing it soon.
Check out the teaser for an upcoming movie of 2016 Shinn boards. It was great fun a quite some work to shoot this one with dzida production.
Enjoy & spread the word!
Last week info about new stuff was released on cabrinhakites.com. I’m very excited about upcoming year, especially about new Chaos which I had a chance to try in Turkey. Kite is a proper c-shape now. Another major difference is a new bar with a 6-line setup ONLY which is very cool in my opinion.
I used it only with a “middle” setting so let’s just say that I got to know the feeling of the kite but I didn’t try every possible configuration. Therefore I just can wonder how much diffrence it really is between all these settings. You can basically adjust both steering and power lines as well as additional support lines (6-line setup). It gives you many possibilities of trimming the kite exactly how you want to use it. On the water the kite felt very direct and responsive. Without bridles it generates much more pop. For sure it was more agressive than previous Chaos models but, as for me, it had many advantages over other “big brands” c-shapes.
Personally I hate 5th line. I think it’s just a stupid idea for brands that cannot produce efficient kites without it. On the other hand classic 4 line setup is demanding for making a good freestyle machine. Without bridles it’s hard to make it stable as you could see in shotsling which is trying some wierd shit to make it work nicely. So actually 6-line setup is something that everybody should just want in their freestyle kites. It’s a very smart solution which resolves all problems. Of course it has been done before by company called Flexifoil. I happen to ride on hadlowpros for quite some time. So here’s my only question that I had before trying new Chaos: “how similar is this stuff to good old hadlowpro?”. If you ever tried flexi and didn’t like it at once you probably don’t understand anything about freestyle kites. It was insane to ride with flexi and MOST of the people enjoyed it more than any other kites whatever they tried before. Of course it had many faults like poor relaunch or shitty quality but in general it was one of the best or just THE BEST kite for freestyle.
So when I heard that Cabrinha is making something similar I got very excited. Quality is amazing. Pictures don’t really show how for example light and well done is the bar for Chaos. it’s just ART! Kite itself is very neat and as a cabrinha product it will endure a lot. It’s not a suprise for anybody- thay have years of experience in making this stuff.
Comparing to hadlowpro it was a bit more civilised. With a setting I used it had more depower (range) and was less direct and tough as flexi. Of course you could change that easily but it was a “middle ground” so I was mostly curious about this setting. Riding was similar to Torch (mayby because kite profile is so similar) but with a “low V” rather than (this dumbass, worthless) “Y split” of power lines you could feel the kite better. It has a very good pop and slack. After landings kite drifts exactly like hadlowpro which is very cool. It’s not the same kite for sure as flexi, because many things are diffrent, but 6-line and new design put Chaos on top of the game in upcoming season for sure. And if you don’t belive me just consider this whole text as a bunch of bullshit and try the kite by yourself. I hope you will like it then.
Here’s a product clip and a short explanation of new Chaos:
I will be using my new kites pretty soon in Poland so for sure I’ll get to know all settings better and see how much this kite can do.
I’m in Turkey once again and it’s fantastic here. Kiting is perfect everyday and we’re very happy that Kite Academy invited us to enjoy this beautiful place. Everyday wind starts blowing at 11.00 and stops around 17.00. I really like this schedule casue you have enough time in the morning to wake up and go out with no stress that you will miss anything. If you ask me that’s my favourite spot in Europe with no doubt.
I’m on top of my game right now. Never before could I throw so many hammers, espacially on a big kite. KGB5 and BJ5 are quite easy now. Because conditions are so easy here I try to do more grabs and some technical shit like toeside tricks and rewinds from BJ and 313. Still there is so much to learn. We filmed few tricks with a gopro so you can expect a little video when I get back home.
On the other side I’m very excited about 2016 Chaos kite which I’ve already tried here. They complately changed the kite and now it’s very similar to flexiHadlowpro with a 6 line setup and everything. There are no bridles, kite profile is a proper C-shape. It’s just much better and more agressive so I’m amazed that I will be using it preety soon.

As you may know I’ve been to Fuerte for a 2016 Shinn boards photoshoot. It was an amazing trip and it was really cool to finally meet the whole Shinnworld family. You will see the result of this trip somewhere in mid August so stay tuned because 2016 boards are AWESOME!
(and to tell the truth the new look fo ADHD is something that you really DONT WANT TO MISS!)
