The Cabrinha Quest will seek out the world's most remote and dynamic kitesurfing and surfing locations. Cabrinha Kiteboarding and Offshore Odysseys have announced a collaboration that will also build awareness and inspiring solutions to the environmental crisis.
"Offshore Odysseys began from a simple need to see what was beyond the horizon. Circumnavigating the Earth providing remote sailing, kitesufing, and surfing charters provides that opportunity. Exploration remains at the heart of why we continue to wander", explains Gavin McClurg, founder of Offshore Odyssey.
"But over the past decade and a half of our travels, sailing every ocean and dozens of the worlds seas, it has become clear that our model is no longer sustainable. So, we are taking a 'cradle to cradle' approach with every decision in our operation. Our goal to operate at a carbon neutral low impact mandate is just the begining of this quest", he adds.
The Cabrinha Quest expedition is a five year agreement between both brands. A quest to experience native cultures in their natural state, to consciously explore the Oceans of the world with passion, integrity, and sensitivity to the cultures and ecosystems we inhabit.
"I'm very excited to be a part of this journey. Ever since my first trip aboard Gavin's Discovery 3 years ago, I've been intrigued by the idea of seeking out kitesurfing and surfing locations off the beaten path", says Pete Cabrinha.
"The Cabrinha Quest will now provide an attainable way to satisfy this curiosity for anyone who has a drop of adventure in their blood. The fact that this can be done in complete luxury with minimal impact to the environment is a huge bonus".
