The Spade is a super fun versatile surfboard that is suitable for small to medium waves or for aerial freestyle tricks. The Cabrinha Spade is specifically designed by Pete Cabrinha for the kiter who likes to combine rail to rail surfing with aerial tricks. This season the Spade has been slightly modified resulting in a faster rail-to-rail response, more lift and speed.
The Spade 2021 has been tweaked in a few key ways this season. First of all, the width has been slightly reduced for a faster edge-to-edge response and to give the rail some more contact with the water. That's why loading up the rail on a bottom turn is now a lot easier and it also provides an easy pop for your aerial tricks. The Spade now also has a new bottom channel through the tail for lift and speed. Finally, a fifth fin box has been added this year so that you can choose whether you want to ride with a quad or thruster fin setup.
The Spade includes a tailpad, but the fins and front pad need to be purchased separately. Due to its slightly wider and rounder outline under the front foot, the board plans quickly and feels very stable. On the other hand, the board is characterized by a pointed nose and round outline so that you can make short and sharp turns in the pocket of the wave and the nose will not get in the way at the lip of the wave. It is easy to stay upwind with de Spade 2021 Cabrinha and it furthermore accelerates quickly. This makes the board very suitable for small to medium-sized waves that are slightly slower, ideal for our North Sea!
