Dudu Mazzocato joins Cabrinha Kiteboarding in the position of Chief Kite Designer.

“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 groundbreaking 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.” – Pete Cabrinha
