Cabrinha is pleased to announce the continuation of the Cabrinha Quest, the acclaimed seafaring expedition which has taken its members to the most remote and dynamic kite and surf locations around the world. Over the past 13 Years, Cabrinha Quest and its predecessor traveled to more than 100 destinations. From the fjords of Patagonia and Scotland to the Marshall Islands, French Polynesia, Fiji, Micronesia, Palau, Cape Verdes and many more.
The upcoming expedition will commence in June 2019 and continue for five years. The first year’s itinerary shall include a return to perhaps the most epic locale, the Louisiades Archipelago in Papua New Guinea followed then by visits to Sumba and Sumbawa before crossing into the Northern Hemisphere for an extended visit to the Maldives starting in December.
“Over the past 5 years the Cabrinha Quest has inspired thousands of ocean loving fans to dream big. To think of the world outside of their home and to connect with the places and cultures that exist along the ocean’s far reaching edges. Moving into the next phase of the Quest, we look forward to making those places more accessible to our Cabrinha base. Whether it be in person or through the lens of social media, we aim to gently fan the flames of wanderlust…and put you right there.” – Pete Cabrinha
