Cabrinha Says:

The XO Siren model is inspired by none other than the one and only Susi Mai. As a leader in performance riding and a role model for many, it was an easy task to create a board suited to her needs and the needs of the growing population of women in kiteboarding. Our approach to developing the XO was to start from scratch and engineer this board from the ground up. The result is a performance freestyle model with a soft / responsive flex. Details like appropriate sizes and widths, narrower stance options and lighter weights all make this board the ideal choice for women of all levels.

Our Testers Say:

“User friendly, comfortable pad/straps and edges well although ideal for semi-flat conditions,” Evangeline Amores.

“One of the easiest boards to pop off the water, soft landings and fun to ride in the La Ventana chop,” Ginette Buffone.

“The perfect balance of liveliness and stability for a really fun ride. Great design for smaller, lighter riders,” Cherie Costello.

Meet the 2014 TKB Test Team.

TKB Says:

The 2014 Cabrinha Siren features a performance freeride template with PVC / Paulownia wood laminate construction, double concaves in the tips with a flat center section under the stance, medium to soft flex and 3 holes for adjusting stance width and 3 settings for adjusting duck. Testers commented on the Siren’s average weight, yet praised the liveliness of the board for jumping and carving. Finding the Siren extremely user friendly, testers recommended this as a fun freestyle-oriented board that is sized for smaller riders and will please kiters of all skill levels.

Our Siren came with the Hydra H1 Series straps and pads that are designed particularly for smaller feet. These are basic one Velcro adjustment straps that are easy to adjust and install. Our female testers gave the Siren’s pad and strap combo high praise for comfort and control.
