Pete Cabrinha is an uncommon individual. Pete's dedication to water sports has gained him both pioneer and master status in three of the most cutting edge sports to come along in the past three decades. International titles in surfing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing have put Pete at the top of a short list of world class watermen.
Its 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 success and lifestyle as a professional water sports athlete and the founder of Cabrinha Kitesurfing 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 street art found in the international cities that he often frequents. This cultural juxtaposition strikes a precarious balance and lends a unique flair to his mixed media art works.
For Pete Cabrinha to find inspiration he has to look no further than his immediate surroundings.
