Cameron Dietrich Cabrinha Pro Rider
Cameron Dietrich Cabrinha Pro Rider. I met Cam in Cabarete and we spent some good time in Antigua on Les Belles Yacht. An athlete and worldwide ambassador for kitesurfing, Cameron Dietrich epitomizes the essence of the sport. Adventurous. Technical. And obsessed with all things related to the ocean. Born and raised in Puerto Rico, his natural talents in the water emerged early. He does it all -- from windsurfing to scuba diving and fly fishing. Ultimately, kitesurfing became his sport of choice and he began his 7 year career as a team rider for Cabrinha traveling on tour.
His larger than life persona garnered the respect and admiration from fellow team riders, industry insiders, and those that simply share the same passion he does for kitesurfing. Cameron's innate understanding of the equipment made him an easy choice to work closely in design and development, particularly the evolution of the Bow kite.
