Cabrinha: Cape Town Confidential
It is surely the best kite film of the year! The Cabrinha team stars in this super production and we enjoy it for 30 minutes. This film illustrates perfectly what is the spirit of the kite and a true team spirit.
It starts big with an intro that sets the bar for the rest of the film and a good BBQ session with an electric repellent mosquito device. Inevitably, there is always a guy that will put it on his jewels… It is stupid but it always made us laugh a little when seeing this.
Otherwise, Nick Jacobsen is being Nick Jacobsen and forces Keahi de Aboitiz to have a good swimming session to go rescue the kite that the Danish couldn’t recover.
For the most part, the images are incredible especially the group sequences. In any case, it is a beautiful showcase of what can be done with a kite and a board, enough to make you want to kite or at least take a closer look.
