Pete at his home in Maui, Hawaii.

 

AN inspired life

Pete Cabrinha is an uncommon individual. Pete’s dedication to water sports has gained him both pioneer and master status in three of surfing’s most innovative spin-offs of the past three decades. International titles in surfing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing have put Pete into an exclusive list of world class watermen.

It’s that same passion that has fueled Pete’s parallel life as an artist. For the past two decades Pete has pursued the arts with vigor and curiosity. He has paired his technical photography skills with his off center painting techniques to capture the essence of a life lived above and below the Hawaiian waters.

Pete’s lifestyle as a professional water sports athlete, entrepreneur, and founder of Cabrinha® enables him to travel the world. With one foot in the sand and one foot on the sidewalk he is continually inspired – not only by the ocean and the people of his Hawaiian birthplace but by the art found in the international cities that he often frequents. This cultural juxtaposition strikes a precarious balance that lends a unique flair to his mixed media art works.
